A Lego Mindstorms robotics kit controlled by an HTC Nexus One smartphone successfully untangled a Rubik’s Cube puzzle in 12.5 seconds at this week’s ARM developer conference in Silicon Valley.
ARM principal engineer David Gilday, who masterminded the robotic Rubik’s Cube demo, told DeviceGuru that the 12.5-second run was the fastest result at the show, but that the average 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube solution in the current setup had been running around 15 seconds.
