London, Nov 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Breadan Vallance has been crowned as UK’s Rubik champion. Vallace thus retains the title which he won last year. Several people entered into the competition but the highlight of the day was the Cubestormer II robot which entered into the contest as non-scoring competitor.

The robot beat all the humans to finish the 3×3x3 cube contest in 6.03 seconds. Because the robot was competing in the contest as a non-scoring contestant, the next contestant which was Vallace was named the winner.

The competition was tight for Vallce. Nonetheless, he won the game by beating over 70 humans who took part in the competition. Vallace averaged the time 9.48 seconds to win the contest.

Daniel Sheppard broke the record for the Rubik’s Cube blindfolded contest. Sheppard beat the other contestants to complete the contest in just 49 seconds. That is the new record in the blindfold contest.

The robot was the favorite of the fans who watched the competition. The automated machine was made by David Gliday and Mike Dobson. Once again, the robot proved that the machines are superior to their human counterparts.

Vallance is the number one Rubik player in the United Kingdom.
