jeroenb writes "Researchers of the Delft University of Technology and the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter have succeeded for the first time in the world in controlling the spin of a single electron in a nanostructure. They are able to rotate the spin to every possible direction and to record it accordingly. This achievement makes it possible to use the electron's spin as a 'quantum bit', the basis of a (still theoretical) future quantum computer. The researchers have published this scientific breakthrough in the August 17 2006 edition of Nature."
