At speedcubing.com I read about a new version of a robot called RuBot II which solves Rubik’s Cube. Solving Rubik’s Cube is one thing, but building a real looking robot solving Rubik’s Cube is really something else.
RuBot II has been built by Pete Redmond from Dublin in Ireland. It has to be the coolest looking robot solver ever with sound and music. There are cameras in the eyes of the head that scan the cube before the pneumatic arms solve it. It usually solves the Cube in a max of about 50 seconds (not including [Read More...]
A few days ago I posted a Rubik’s Cube solver build with FischerTechnik.
This Rubik’s Cube solver is not build with the help of any toys, but just pure engineering at the University of Michigan. Watch the FischerTechnic Rubik’s Cube solver video at YouTube.com. Happy Puzzling!

Almost half a year ago I already posted an item about a Rubik’s cube solver build and programmed with Lego’s Mindstorm.
Well more toys can be used to solve Rubik’s cube. FischerTechnik can also be used to solve Rubik’s Cube. Professor Artur Fischer invented FischerTechnik in 1964 and it was supposed to only be a Christmas gift for customers and business partners.
The system is based on a basic building block, which can be built out or built on on all six sides, just as you wish with angle blocks, static parts, numerous [Read More...]
This amazing piece of work I found via The Goldfish Online. As well as Martin James Howard from the Goldfish Online as Maarten Steurbaut build a working Rubik’s Cube by using Lego and are both AFOL’s (Adult Fans Of Lego).
Maarten explains on his website by using a lot of pictures how he designed and build his Rubik’s Cube which weights more than 6 kg (6.6 pounds) and in still able to rotate.
The only downside is that the internal axes, which enable Rubik’s Cube to rotate, are too [Read More...]
One of the most brilliant idea’s to solve Rubik’s Cube is to use some Lego bricks and Lego Mindstorm NXT.
Just build your own Lego Machine to rotate Rubik’s Cube and write a program for Legon Mindstorm NXT to solve Rubik’s cube. More information can be found at the Lego Mindstorm website. You can buy LEGO Mindstorms NXT from Amazon.com. Happy Puzzling!
