So Dr. Daystrom became famous for inventing Duotronic computing.. Was it ever mentioned what makes it different from electronic computing? In the Star Trek tech manual perhaps? I just saw a video about quantum computers how they work in principal and how they have some advantage over electronics but also disadvantages. So maybe duotronics successfully combines the two for the first time? Which would explain the name. And yes, i realize it's a totally made-up word with no real world thought behind it when it was created.
