Robots are getting smarter and smarter, seemingly because humanity just can't help inching closer and closer to their inevitable demise at the hands of steel T-800 fingers.
The latest breakthrough has a robot built by hobbyists solving a Rubik's cube. No big deal right, humans have been doing that for years. Well this little fella can sort a scrambled cube in a just over a flat second. It's so fast that you can barely see the moves, check out the video below with the enthusiastic makers.
It's a fairly simple machine, with a rig which holds each face of the cube and a camera for very quickly scoping out the moves that need to be made. It really is blindingly fast, with a purpose built algorithm which has been used effectively in similar projects. The pair are applying for that world record status right now, little did they know this was another inexporable step towards Judgement Day.
