I will give a brief overview over the latest achievments in the field of superconducting qubits. Although still far from a scalable quantum computer, the question is now really what can and should be done with a few qubit system. As an example I will demonstrate how an arbitrary accuracy phase estimation algorithm can be implemented on a two qubit setup.
