Robot "contraption" smashes Rubik record in 0.38 seconds

This robot solved a Rubik's Cube in 0.38 seconds

Additionally, the robot is designed in a way that ensures only one of the six motors is operating at any time. "So we did." Specifically, the pair used six Kollmorgen ServoDisc U9-series motors.

The motors are now making each turn in 15ms, though the rated speed should allow for turns as fast as 10ms.

In addition, the creators likewise noted that compared to their machine, human users normally loosen the Rubik's cube puzzle for smoother turns.

The pair largely attributes the impressive time to using better motors.

A video posted to Katz's YouTube channel shows the machine solving a cube in 0.38 seconds.

Surprisingly, they found that tightening the cube to make it harder to turn actually helped.

'The machine can definitely go faster, but the tuning process is really time consuming since debugging needs to be done with the high speed camera, and mistakes often break the cube or blow up [field effect transistors],' Katz explained.

Mr. Beer is considered to have made a world record by creating a robot that finished the Rubik's puzzle in 0.637 seconds.

"For the time being, Jared and I have both lost interest in playing the tuning game", Katz, a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, wrote on his blog.

Katz gives a thorough rundown of what was involved in making the robot on his blog, just in case you want to try something like this for yourself. In October 2017, Korean wunderkind SeungBeom Cho set a new world record of an incredible 4.59 seconds.

It appears that the outer sides of the cube tend to shift outward due to the speed of the motors.

Even so, Katz and Di Carlo have established that their machine is capable of solving a Rubik's cube at insanely fast speeds. Once slowed down to.03 times regular speed, the Rubik's Cube can be seen shattering.

He beat the previous world record holder by just 0.05 seconds.
