Here is a Rubik’s Cube that does all the hard work for us—it solves itself.
Posted on the YouTube channel Human Controller, the video description links to a Japanese blog that includes the layout of its sensors, inner modified hardware, and computer code used to create the mini robot. The blog also features three videos—the cube solving itself, the cube self-solving while being held, and the design’s disassembly.
This adds to a string of Rubik’s Cube-centered tech missions, which includes a machine that could solve the puzzle in a new world record of 0.38 seconds back in March 2018. The fast-thinking machine was created by MIT student Ben Katz and software engineer Jared Di Carlo.
You can watch the robo-cube that assembles itself in the video below.
