I’ve never been any good at solving a Rubik’s Cube but I do know some people that are. During my last trip to cover the Consumer Electronics Show, I set up an impromptu face-off between the two gurus. It lasted about 20 some-odd seconds and that was that.

That said, neither of those guys would be any match for the robot used in the video you see above. This machine is able to solve the cube in about one second… well, sort of. I suppose the correct term would be that it can implement a solution in that amount of time as it actually takes a bit longer for the robot to scan the cube to work out the correct twists and turns necessary to match all sides.
