Robot's Rubik's revenge: Cult cube torn asunder in lightning fast solution bid

Man Vs Robot Who Can Solve Rubik’s Cube Faster? Watch World-record Breaking Video

That is where they realized that they can use better motors than competitors and solve the puzzle very fast.

The robot uses the min2phase algorithm to solve the puzzle, taking the data received by the cameras and converting it into a sequence of moves for the motors to execute. In a blog post, Di Carlo explained how previous record-holders used stepper motors to rotate the cubes, and he realized that they could do better with improved motors. "So we did." Specifically, the pair used six Kollmorgen ServoDisc U9-series motors.

The video below demonstrates the Rubik's cube in an unsolved position and after that the actuators bounce vigorously, slamming squares into place like some kind of crazed version of Will Smith's character in The Pursuit of Happyness. Karz and Di Carlos claim that the robot is actually capable of faster speeds than 0.38 seconds, but that it would require more development and troubleshooting that may not be worth it to shave a few fractions of a second off of this already impressive time.

This enables the robot to be able to solve the Rubik's cube at mind-blowing speeds. The creator also noted that several cubes were broken during their tuning process.

Ted Cruz, Beto O'Rourke will face off for Texas Senate seat
A big problem for Texas Democrats is that their biggest-name politicians opted not to run in statewide races. As The Texas Tribune reported , Texas could elect two Latinx women to the U.S.

Mr. Beer is considered to have made a world record by creating a robot that finished the Rubik's puzzle in 0.637 seconds. "For the time being, Jared and I have both lost interest in playing the tuning game", writes Katz.

The robot took a fraction of a second to analyse the cube and make 21 moves to solve the puzzle. In October 2017, Korean wunderkind SeungBeom Cho set a new world record of an incredible 4.59 seconds.

The robot's power semiconductor muscles then activate six motors, one for each side of the cube, which speedily twist and turn the puzzle, solving it in a fraction of a second. 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.

And their record runs laps around the Guinness World Record set by humans. That honour now appears to be in jeopardy, however, as a pair of engineers have demonstrated a new robot that can solve a Rubik's Cube in nearly half that time: A mere 0.38 seconds.
