Ruby – The Rubik’s Cube Solving Robot

It never ceases to amaze me the awesome things that college students build.  Usually those awesome creations come out of schools like MIT, but in this case we are talking about some students at Swinburne University of Technology.  These students created Ruby, a Rubik’s Cube solving robot.  Perhaps the most impressive thing is that it can scan and solve a fully scrambled Rubik’s Cube in about 10 seconds.  Only about 4 seconds slower than the human record.  Sadly, I have never solved one so I am forced to say that this robot is better than I am.  Check out the awesome video below of Ruby in action!
