LEGO Robot Demolishes the World Rubik’s Cube Speed Record

Some people can barely solve a Rubik’s Cube, but for this LEGO robot, it is no problem at all.

The Cubestormer 3, a robot made from LEGOs using a smartphone brain, broke the world record for fastest time in solving a Rubik’s Cube.

Teenager Collin Burns holds the human record at 5.25 seconds to solve a Rubik’s cube as seen below (done after the robot’s attempt):

But the Cubestormer 3 was previously able to beat that record by doing it at 3.253 seconds.

The smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy S4 acts as the eyes and the brain, examining the cube and figuring out which moves are to be made next which then gets relayed to the LEGO Mindstorms robot.
