People have been competing in Rubik’s cube for years, but since the beginning of the robots, even the hottest homo sapiens have not had the slightest chance. The latest machine created for this purpose, the cult cube is set in just over a second.
For a few years, engineers from all over the world have competed with each other to build a robot created for the Rubik’s Cube as quickly as possible. In 2014, one of these machines set a world record, performing this task in 3.253 seconds. It was an incredibly quick dice puzzle, but it turned out that this time could be even shorter.
This was demonstrated by Jay Flatland and Paul Rose, who jointly built a specialized machine made of metal frame, stepper motors and four high resolution cameras that control the condition of the ankle. The whole was created using a 3D printer.
The robot is connected to a PC equipped with Linux, which serves as his brain, while the engine is controlled by an Arduino controller.Tweet
