Lego Robot Solves Rubik's Cube In 3.253 Seconds

Lego Robot Solves Rubik's Cube In 3.253 Seconds | Electro Mechanics | Scoop.it

In October of 2011, Mike Dobson and David Gilday’s CubeStormer II robot, built from Lego kits and powered by a Samsung Galaxy S2, set the world record for solving a Rubik’s Cube: 5.27 seconds. That time just narrowly defeated the best ever human time, marking the first time a robot had done so.

Now the two robot builders are at it again. At last weekend’s Big Bang Fair in Birmingham UK, the team brought their next creation: the CubeStormer 3. Again built from Lego mechanical and robotics parts and this time powered by a Samsung Galaxy S4, the robot shattered the record set by the CubeStormer II by solving a Rubik’s Cube in only 3.253 seconds – which is not only faster than the CubeStormer II, but also faster than the fastest human time of 5.55 secondsset by Mats Valk.

Watch carefully as it is really really fast. Raising the question: will robots have as much fun as we do when we play ?
