Quantum chip from University of Michigan, how can we benefit?

In Wired online, there's news about the University of Michigan developing a quantum microchip.  Processing speeds and sizes would be taken to new levels.  To a non-geek this appears to be the cutting-edge.

My question:  With Michigan struggling with the atrophy of its economy because of the struggling auto industry, how can policy makers make use of this new chip as an economic development tool in the state?

Could this be a catalyst for our economic transformation, to give us the same hope that we had when the auto industry was at its zenith?
