How sick is this?

Recommended Posts

I really hope that guy built it for an engineering class or something for college credit. Otherwise I would hate to think of how much free time he spent just to solve a puzzle I and many others stopped worrying about in 1986.

Reply | Spam Why the hell would they need a 10 ton robot to figure out a rubix cube. My friend can finish it in like 10 seconds.

I agree, to an extent. Still, knowing all the algorithms needed to solve a cube in sub 20 second time is pretty ridiculous and takes a lot of work vs having a computer which is infinitely faster in decision making. Just because you don't care about a hobby doesn't mean other shouldn't. Either way, he made the video for your entertainment, and its still cool to see.

If you have a computer do the algorithms, you can do it pretty quick in about 20 moves...

 

It usually takes me about 60 - 90 seconds when I'm doing well, but I don't remember some of the permutations anymore :glare:

Very impressive. I knew a guy who could do it behind his back in under 30 seconds
