Teen's Rubik's Cube Robot Solves Classic Puzzle


Lazy and inept gamers (with sophisticated programming and engineering skills, of course), have previously created robots and programs capable of solving 'Super Mario Bros.' and Sudoku puzzles. Now, Lithuanian high school senior Andrius Sutas, incorporating a "layer-by-layer" algorithm, has apparently constructed a robot that can successfully solve that classic king of frustration: the Rubik's Cube.

The program and robot are absolutely impressive, but the Rubik's-bot demonstration still pales in comparison to the exploits of some humans, specifically the 3-year-old girl who solved the puzzle in less than two minutes. And, it's still significantly easier, far less infuriating, and equally satisfying to just take the dang thing apart and put it back together again. [From: Neatorama]
