U.S. inventors build robot able to solve Rubik's Cube in 0.38 seconds

He stated that most of the Rubik's solvers were trying to use stepper motors for solving the Rubik's puzzle.

Katz also goes on to explain how a robot handles the cube. The algorithm used typically needs 19 to 23 moves to solve a cube.

A video posted to Katz's YouTube channel shows the machine solving a cube in 0.38 seconds. According to the duo, the data provided by their tests suggest that the robot could complete the puzzle within 0.25 seconds. Katz re-used motors from other robotics projects as well as others sourced from eBay, as well as two US$7-PlayStation Eye cameras.

The researchers discovered that they could easily beat the world record by using a different kind of motor on their 'Rubik's Contraption'. "For the time being, Jared and I have both lost interest in playing the tuning game", writes Katz.

The pair's solution, Kollmorgen ServoDisc motors, can rotate a side of the Rubik's cube in just 10 milliseconds, or 0.01 seconds.

As Katz pointed out, several Rubik's cubes were destroyed in the process of their tests.

In addition, the creators likewise noted that compared to their machine, human users normally loosen the Rubik's cube puzzle for smoother turns.

Katz gives a thorough rundown of what was involved in making the robot on his blog, just in case you want to try something like this for yourself.

Even so, Katz and Di Carlo have established that their machine is capable of solving a Rubik's cube at insanely fast speeds. If the speed recorded in this video is any indication, however, it's clear that the Rubik's Contraption will soon take the throne when it comes to cube speed.

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.
