Robot Sets Rubik’s Cube World Record: 5.35 Seconds

Cobbling together some LEGOs and a smartphone running a custom Android app, Mike Dobson and David Gilday built CubeStormer II, a lean, mean Rubik’s Cube-solving machine. Cracking a Rubik’s Cube in 5.35 seconds, Cubestormer II made mincemeat out of Ruby, the previous robot record holder — 10.18 seconds. And it even edged out the existing world record, 5.66 seconds, set by Feliks Zemdegs earlier this year. Watch him go below.

To see Cubestormer II in action, you can visit ARM TechCon 2011, to be held in Santa Clara, California on October 26 and 27. H/T Science Dump.
