Make A The Rubik’s Cube Solver With Raspberry Pi And Popsicle Sticks #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Make a rubik’s cube solver with Raspberry pi and popsicle sticks. by matt2uy via instructables

So here is a project I’ve been working on for a while…

This robot that can solve a Rubik’s cube using Arduino.

I learned how to solve a Rubiks cube last year, and I was also into Arduino, so eventually I ended up with an idea to make my own Rubiks cube solver.

A lot of people have probably seen the tilted twister design by Hans Andersson:

I looked around at the existing Rubik’s cube solvers, and I liked that design, so I built a similar version of it with (mostly) popsicle sticks, using an Arduino and 2 servos.

My robot takes 20 minutes to enter the cube state and solve.


Step 1: Materials (take picture)

Electronics:

– Arduino UNO R3

– 2 servos (I used Hitec HS-311’s)

– wires

– USB cable

Hardware:

– popsicle sticks

– wooden skewers

– thin plywood

– wooden wheel (skewer must fit inside the hole)

– hot glue

– paper towel roll

Software:

– Arduino IDE – (Algorithms in C++)

– Python 2.7+ and Tkinter – (GUI)

– Pyserial
