Robots have once again shown their superiority to humans, this time by solving a Rubik's Cube in less than half a second. The new build, created by software developer Jared Di Carlo and MIT Biometrics Lab Master’s student Ben Katz, can solve a 3X3 square Rubik’s Cube in just 0.38 seconds.
Humans have steadily increased their Rubik’s cube solving speed over the past few decades but have been no match for robotic competition. The current human world record holder, SeungBeom Cho, solved the cube in a by-comparison slothlike 4.59 seconds.
Prior to Katz and Di Carlo’s build, another robot made by Infineon Technologies called Sub1 Reloaded was able to complete the task in just 0.63 seconds.
