Rubiks cube + Lego + smartphone + brains
What happens when one of the most popular and timeless puzzles that the 1980’s bestowed upon us, a world famous 65 year old children’s toy and a smartphone meet the hands of a couple of british engineers.
That’s right, you get the Cubestormer III
What the latest version of Cubestormer does in nothing short of remarkable. Solving a Rubik’s cube in 3.253 seconds, this smartphone powered intricate Lego contraption gains it’s creators David Gilday (@DavidGilday) and Mike Dobson a refreshed position in the guinness book of records.
The pair of engineers used the latest Lego Mindstorm motors, along with a custom made phone app to beat their previous record of 5.352 seconds set by the Cubestormer II back in 2011. The human record still stands at 5.55 seconds and unfortunately for mankind, the pair who both dabble in robotics in their spare time, are already planning a Cubestormer IV.
