Ruby Robot

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 3 June 2011

Some Melbourne students have built a robot which can solve Rubik's Cube in just over 10 seconds - a world record.

Robot Ruby can unscramble the puzzle in 10.69 seconds, far faster than the previous record-holder, the Cubinator, which solved it in just over 18 seconds.
