CubeStormer II robot solves Rubik’s Cube in seconds

On November 4, 2011, in Robotics, by Mike Jefferson

Today’s robots can play Angry Birds on tablets, but other robots such as Ruby can solve Rubik’s Cube in seconds, and speaking of Rubik’s Cube and robots, today we have another robot that is capable of solving Rubik’s Cube.


CubeStormer II is robot specifically designed by Mike Dobson and David Gilday for solving of Rubik’s Cube. As for the parts, CubeStormer II is made out of LEGOs, or out of four MINDSTORMS NXT kits to be precise. Besides LEGOs, CubeStormer II uses Samsung Galaxy S2 with custom Android app that works as robot’s brain. The process of solving Rubik’s Cube is rather simple: phone’s camera shoots images of each face of the cube before it begins solving it, and two-phase algorithm does the complex calculations.

As for the speed, CubeStormer II can solve Rubik’s Cube in less than six seconds, which is impressive. Anyhow, we hope that we’ll see future versions of this robot someday soon.
