Robots are quite good at solving Rubik’s Cube puzzles. We have seen a bunch of them capable of getting the job done under a second. Ben Katz’ robot can do it in 0.38sec. This contraption was made with 6 Kollmorgen ServoDisc U9-series motors, 2 PS Eye cameras, and 6 custom motor drivers.
As Jared Di Carlo explains:
solve time of 0.38 seconds includes acquiring the image from the webcam, detecting colors, finding a solution, and actually rotating the faces of the cube
Pretty impressive, don’t you think?
