In this paper we provide a review of the perpetual optical topological quantum computer, a large scale quantum architecture utilising a single quantum component. We will examine the building block of this architecture, the photonic module, the original architecture design and a modified design which allows for the entire computer to be constructed solely from a single component. Given the extraordinary specificity of this design we can provide a pessimistic resource analysis, utilising deliberately bad circuit designs and arrangements to determine the size and speed of a large scale factoring engine.
