    I think Moore's law will be broken in another way. Once a major wall is hit other technologies like BDT will then be pushed forward, and there will be a huge leap in performance.

    How so? Quantum coherence is not achieved. Beginning is far away.

    Single atom transistors in the laboratory are interesting, but practical desktop use is still years away, if even possible.

    There's a quantum computer out there that can do simple math.."3x7"

    This may or may not help us to reach the goal of quantum computing any time soon, but it may well help to advance technology generally and help us create smaller circuits.
