Yes, and Photoshop is supposed to be used with capital letter, and either as reference to the name of the software; not, say, as a verb.

Nobody does this either.

I think they`re trying to protect the brand name from being genericized. Both LEGO and Adobe have failed on multiple counts.

@beternal: Actually, LEGO is supposed to be all capital letters all the time, and it`s supposed to be used with a noun (like LEGO bricks or LEGO set), not on its own, like "a bunch of legos".

Nobody does this, though.

Nice! Now apply your time and effort to cancer and tumors.

What IS impressive is that it`s made out of Lego!

(And please, I can`t be arsed to work out the correct way of saying Lego... I know it`s a company name so if it`s wrong and it`s meant to be Legos or Lego`s or whatever... please jump off a bridge before correcting me!)

I just meant that it`s not impressive to see a robot do exactly what it`s solely programmed for.

@LazyMe484 you are forgetting about the latency of data.

@LazyMe484 If you watch it carefully, roughly the first second is the machine analyzing the cube and solving it. Afterwards, the screen changes to a render of the cube instead of the camera view when it begins rotating it into the solution.

And how much time does that really need to take? If a desktop cpu can calculate the first hundred thousand digits of pi in one second, then solving a rubiks cube is a matter of a few milliseconds.

I bet they could shave a whole second off their time here just by upgrading the hardware.

People are creative though. It would be awesome if this was the start of something bigger. If now people built machines to push the solve time even lower. ... down to a point where the strength of the plastic the cube is made from becomes the bottleneck :-P ... and then design a better cubes.

A pity, it looks like I chose the wrong branch of engineering.

Here you go Batmanners.

The human record doesn`t include inspection time, so the person can look around the cube and start solving it in their head before the clock starts, whereas this robot inspects the cube, runs the algorithms and find an efficient solution, and execute it, all in less time.

That was so awesome that I will break with tradition and say...

I for one welcome our Rubik`s Cube solving overlords.

That kicks ass. Anybody can solve a Rubik`s cube. It takes a briliant mind to build a Lego robot to do it faster and more efficiently. Great find AB.

I`d be more impressed to see a human do it under 10 seconds, than to see a machine perform the rubix cube algorithms.

He pre configured the cube before putting it in the machine. the app was more then likely programmed to do the same moves he did in reverse thus solving the cube.
