How do I invest in quantum computing?

I would like to invest money in emergent technologies that may be a little further down the road.

I am somewhat excited about new technologies that are still very much in their infancy, or even at the conceptual stage- things like quantum computing, carbon nanotube chips, recent advances in robotics, etc. I see these things as very much the opposite of the various apps and things that are attracting a lot of VC capital right now, but sound like something out of Charles Mackay.
Recognizing that these would be longer-term investments, what would be the best way to go about putting a few grand towards these sorts of technologies. My interest comes both from the point of view of earning a return, and also supporting the development of things with the potential for real human advancement. Are there funds that specialize in this? How do I avoid the silicon valley garbage that is currently getting a lot of attention?
