An idea for a nanodevice in which an arbitrary sequence of three basic quantum single qubit gates - negation, Hadamard and phase shift - can be performed on a single electron spin. The spin state is manipulated using the spin-orbit coupling and the electron trajectory is controlled by the electron wave function self-focusing mechanism due to the electron interaction with the charge induced on metal gates. We present results of simulations based on iterative solution of the time dependent
