Humans may have gotten jolly adept at solving Rubik’s Cubes, but as usual, the machines are coming for us! This machine, fabricated by Ben Katz and Jared Di Carlo( humans !) can solve a Rubik’s Cube in roughly half the time of the previous world-wide chronicle, and they claim it can “definitely go faster.”
A video posted to Katz’s YouTube channel shows the machine solving a cube in 0.38 seconds. Earnestly, if you take a particularly opulent blink, you’ll miss it. The video slows down to 25 percent of the rapidity and eventually 3 percent of the hasten to show exactly how the machine isolates slopes and flip-flops them into arrange. Harmonizing to their blog, the founders expect to shave off another 100 milliseconds after some debugging.
The machine was built with six engines( two from a robot limb ), six machine operators, and two PlayStation Eye cameras. The blog offers far more detail about the structure, as well as photos from throughout the process that indicate everything from assemblage to busted Cubes that didn’t make it.
