Robot solves Rubik’s cube in 10 seconds
Learning the Rubik’s cube is on my list of things to do before I die. Though there never seems to be the time.
Now, getting myself a robot that could do it for me would save a lot of time! Time enough to do the next thing on the list, whatever that may be. Luckily a bunch of students at Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, have created such a labour-saving device!

Ruby managed it in just over 10 seconds, which includes the time to analyse. This is the fastest recorded time for a robot to solve the puzzle, though it’s still a few seconds off the fastest human time of 6.24s.
