Robot solved Rubik's cube in 0.38 seconds

  • Rubik's Cube

This enables the robot to be able to solve the Rubik's cube at mind-blowing speeds.

And still the new record-holder bested it by more than 40 percent with a surreal.38 second solve.

Only 0.38 seconds required an American robot to solve Rubik's cube, breaking down the previous world record of 0.637 seconds holding a German robot.

Talent Is Not Gendered, so Why Are Journals Failing Women?

They had to prevent the cube from 'camming, ' or rotating, outwards as the robot rapidly moved the pieces around.

They also purchased several $4.55 Rubik's cubes from Amazon, because they were the cheapest they could fine with next-day delivery - crucial, given the powerful robotic managed to break several as it solved them.

"We noticed that all of the fast Rubik's Cube solvers were using stepper motors and thought that we could do better if we used better motors".

Di Carlo adds: "Most of the time is spent waiting for the webcam driver and detecting colors". However, they used 2 old PS3 cameras to identify the configuration of the cubes and solve the puzzle accordingly.

The cameras are just two PlayStation Eye cameras. He added that one of the secrets to beating the previous robot's best time was using better motors.

In the case of the Rubik's Contraption, this allowed the machine to calculate a solution even faster, by making each move more and more precise. "But the tuning process is really time consuming since the debugging needs to be done with the high-speed camera, and the mistakes often break the cube. But we might come back to it eventually and shave off another 100 milliseconds or so".

The end result is a robot that appears to be a new world-record setter, though the solve time will need to be made official for the duo to take the title. Video was also published by the pair of unsuccessful trials. 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.
