Have you ever played with Rubik’s Cube then how much time do you take to solve it? Here is an incredible robot that solves it in no time. This robot is called CubeStormer II and it uses a Samsung Galaxy S II phone as the brain of this robot. The time taken by this robot to solve the cube is a world record.  

This ARM powered robot was designed, built and programmed by Mike Dobson and David Gilday. The mechanics are constructed entirely from LEGO. This robot uses a Samsung Galaxy S II phone running a custom app as the robot’s brain. The app uses the phone’s camera to capture images of each face of the Rubik’s Cube which it processes to determine the scrambled colors. The solution is found using an advanced two-phase algorithm, originally developed for Speedcuber, enhanced to be multi-threaded to make effective use of the smartphone’s dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 1.2GHz processor. This is really awesome robot with the use of Samsung Galaxy S II.
