Inventors David Gilday and Mike Dobson of the United Kindgom built the "Cubestormer 3" robot in their spare time, and this is a video of it solving a Rubik's Cube in 3.25 seconds, a new world record.
It took Gilday and Dobson 18 months of work (in their spare time, no less) to build their cube-conquering abomination. The Cubestormer 3 uses an ARM (a processor design company based in Cambridge)-designed Samsung Galaxy S4, to analyze the cube and instruct its four robotic hands on how to manipulate the panels.
The creature's time was verified as a new world record on March 15 by Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief of the Guinness World Records book. Its potential to destroy all of mankind has been verified by us.
