Robot to attempt to break Rubiks cube world recordDecember 25th, 2008 - 2:53 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 25 (ANI): A robot, called RuBot 2, is all set to participate in a contest to break a Rubiks cube world record.
The RuBot 2 will go for the record at Royal Dublin Society, Ballsbridge, in Dublin on January 8.
Its inventor Pete Redmond, has claimed that RuBot 2 can solve the puzzle in not more than 35 seconds.
The RuBot 2 is not the first Rubiks Cube solving robot, but it has to be the coolest looking - and I truly believe it to be the fastest robotic Cube solver ever, The Sun quoted Pete as saying.
He added: There are cameras in RuBot 2s eyes that scan the cube before his pneumatic arms solve it.
“He uses a very efficient computer algorithm to figure out how to unjumble the mixed up Rubik’’s Cube and usually comes up with a solution of less than 20 moves.
“After the scan, he can usually do the solve in about 35 seconds, no matter how much it is mixed up.
The Guinness World Record attempt includes scanning time, and I am confident that we can do our complete scan and solve in around 60 seconds.” (ANI)
