We present a discussion of recent concepts for the construction of a spin quantum computer using endohedral fullerenes. The fullerene molecule is a static, room-temperature trap for atoms with slowly relaxing electron and nuclear spins. The fullerene "containers" can be used to arrange the spins in complex structures such as a linear chain, to form a spin quantum register. We discuss the probable properties of such registers and different strategies to use them in a quantum computer design, including gating and read-out methods.
