Robot's Rubik's revenge: Cult cube torn asunder in lightning fast solution bid

World's Largest SSD Samsung

"We used the cheapest cube we could find on Amazon Prime because we thought we'd end up destroying many of them, but somehow ended up only going through 4 cubes and 100's of solves", Di Carlo said. According to the duo, the data provided by their tests suggest that the robot could complete the puzzle within 0.25 seconds. Additionally, the robot is designed in a way that ensures only one of the six motors is operating at any time. Katz re-used motors from other robotics projects as well as others sourced from eBay, as well as two US$7-PlayStation Eye cameras.

Humans may have gotten pretty adept at solving Rubik's Cubes, but as usual, the machines are coming for us!

'When the cube is loose (like it would be if a person were trying to solve it fast), the outer faces just cam outwards when you try to turn the center faces quickly, ' Katz wrote in a blog post.

Motorola's new Moto Mod might be a Daydream viewer in disguise
In a cost cutting exercise Motorola are also looking to scale back their involvement in the development of third party Moto Mods . With the Moto X5 now shelved, we will have to wait and see what the company plans to do to fill this price bracket.

Ben Katz and Jared Di Carlo are the masterminds behind the "Rubik's Contraption", and have posted information about the Rubik's Cube robot whiz on their blog. The creator also noted that several cubes were broken during their tuning process.

'The machine can definitely go faster, but the tuning process is really time consuming since debugging needs to be done with the high speed camera, and mistakes often break the cube or blow up [field effect transistors],' Katz explained.

The machine is so fast that not all the cubes survived the experiment. Once slowed down to.03 times regular speed, the Rubik's Cube can be seen shattering. The record time was set during a 21-move solution.

It's important to recognize that this Rubik's Cube solving robot has yet to be evaluated by Guinness World Record officials, which means that Sub1 is still the king of the cube at this point in time.

He beat the previous world record holder by just 0.05 seconds.
