CUBESTORMER 3 Smashes Rubik's Cube Speed Record !!


(picture by engadget.com)

The world record for fastest time in solving a Rubik's Cube was set by a Dutch guy1 (5.55 seconds).
However it took only 5.27 seconds, for a LEGO robot named Cubestormer 2, back in the fall of 2011. Thanks to the machine's successor (Cubestormer 3), the time to beat is now 3.253 seconds.
The robot, which is the third in a series of automatons designed solely for the purpose of solving the Rubik's Cube ASAP, is powered by an octa-core Samsung Galaxy S4 and LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 bricks.

Congratulations to the designers David Gilday and Mike Dobson

I did not expect them to make another one, but kudos. I'm a bit disappointed about the video though, only 5 seconds of the actual robot from a still angle is really not satisfying...

This was just the recording of the official Guinness World record attempt. There is other footage such as:
