Double Nerdgasm: Rubik’s-Cube-Solving LEGO Robot

The second I discovered this gif of a LEGO Mindstorms robot that’s been programmed to solve a Rubik’s cube, I knew I just had to share it.  Not only does it combine two items near and dear to my inner-geek-child’s heart, it also counts gets my post counter off of 666, and who the hell wants to see THAT number lurking about?

So enjoy my 667th B&WB post, and let me know if anyone’s build one of these things that can open a beer.  Oh wait…never mind!

      But the LEGO bot will leave you with at least 55 seconds to spare. But to be fair, I hear it has a lousy jump shot.

    If you look closely, it hasn’t solved it at the end of the gif. The side facing to the right has two rows of red and a row of blue in the middle.

      I think that’s just the blue sheen of the light reflecting off of the shiny red stickers…

    What’s next an FTL Lego? One that creates wormholes? One that can beat Big Blue at chess? Great creativity here though.

    Reblogged this on dovedaler and commented:
    OK – there is always a certain rivalry between Lego and Meccano builders, (much as there used to be between Amstrad and Sinclair in the old days) but respect where respect is due! I am sure someone could build this in Meccano – but it certainly wouldn’t be me! This is awesome!
