LEGO Rubik Utopy (Movie Monday)

The following video was posted in February of 2008 and shows an NXT robot that can always solve the Rubik’s cube—within a minute or less! The robot’s creator is Daniele Benedettelli, who has experimented with a number of robot designs to solve the Rubik’s cube in the fastest possible way.

    Wow thats crazy! I still cant figure the cube out for the life of me. But thats pretty cool! I know a few people that can do it in under 5 seconds. One person is a rocket scientist, the other person is the rocket scientists son, and the other two people are my cousins, whom have REALLY high IQs. So maybe it has something to do with IQs? I dont know.

    My IQ is pretty high but I still cant figure it out!

    Kristi,

    It is crazy, isn’t it? I’m sure that the robot could beat me. I’ll leave the Rubik’s Cube solving to the robots. :)
