Default Quantum Random Number Generator Created Using A Smartphone Camera

This opens the door for extremely secure communications on/from anyone's cellphone. You can be sure plenty of governments are going to want to regulate/control this tech.

Quote:
Bruno Sanguinetti and pals at the University of Geneva in Switzerland have worked out how to generate random numbers on an ordinary smartphone using genuine quantum processes. And they say their new technique can produce random numbers at the rate of 1 megabit per second, more than enough for most security applications.

Secure credit card transactions are only the beginning. A quantum random number generator that works at 1 Mbps can also secure emails and even phone calls.
