It may have taken you hours to get the hang of solving a Rubik’s Cube, but the Cubestormer 3 can do it in a world record setting 3.253 seconds. The record was set over the weekend at the Big Bang Fair in Birgmingham, UK by a robot built by
David Gilday and Mike Dobson.
The robot is composed of a Samsung Galaxy S4 brain with an Exynos octa-core processor, along with four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 processors controlling the eight Lego Mindstorms actuators. All of it moves so fast that the human eye can’t even track the motions.
The previous record of 5.27 seconds was held by Cubestormer 2. As for humans, we don’t do so well. The human record is a comparatively slow 5.55 seconds which was set last year.
