Topological quantum computation requires creating and braiding non-Abelian anyons. I will describe a simple and systematic approach to constructing effective unitary protocols for braiding, manipulation, and readout of non-Abelian anyons and preparing their entangled states on a NISQ device. Our approach is based on our new graph gauge theory on a planar qubit graph with vertices of degree 2, 3, and 4. I will discuss experimental observations guided by our theory.
