I discuss how systems with non-abelian anyons can be used to build a topological quantum computer. Operations are performed by braiding the anyons; because the outcome of braiding is a purely topological property, such quantum computers should be robust against local errors. I will give several examples of how such anyons arise in fractional quantum Hall systems and in quantum loop models.
