The Lego Mindstorm Robot Solves the Rubik’s Cube for You

Lego Mindstorm Robot

The Rubik’s Cube is one of the most fascinating puzzle toys ever created.

It demands logic, patience, and skill in order to be solved, yet it is wrapped up in a colorful and innocent looking package.

Ever since it first came out, different books, additional toys, and tribute creations have been released to our world. For example, a huge subwoofer was made with the Rubik’s cube DIY. In addition, the Fentix Cube was developed that provides many different digital logic games based on the original founding toy.

Another creation is the Tilted Twister. This latest is a Lego Mindstorm robot built for the sole purpose of solving the Rubik’s Cube. It may defeat the purpose of challenging yourself to actually arrive at the solution alone, but it provides another entertaining way to see the Rubik’s Cube put back in order.

This robot is not as fast as many others that were programmed for this, but still deserves the praise. The average time it requires is 6 minutes, since it scans the cube completely with its built in camera, calculates the correct solution and executes the right moves.

If you own a Rubik’s Cube, would you rather learn to solve it yourself or have a Lego robot solve it for you?

    Hello Aaron,

    You do have a point. The only thing is, with the robot, once you know how it is programmed, simply give it the logical directions from a rubix cube solution book.
    At least with the robot, it can retain the solution and solve the cube.

    I think I’d rather have the robot do it. One small point – I don’t think programming a robot to solve a rubiks cube is less challenging than actually solving the puzzle. You’d need to know how to solve the puzzle to program the robot, yes?
