Q from the peanut gallery. Does having supercooled junctions everywhere limit it's use to laboratories?

This could really open up some possibilities. Hopefully, they'll be able to move the development to not require the use of super-cooled components as that makes it less useable commercially, but doesn't stop the progress. Of course, we have all heard the "un-crackable encryption codes" story line before - extremely difficult maybe, but un-crackabe is very doubtful. However, if it requires the use of a Quantum computer to crack, maybe it would keep the hackers out for some time anyway.
