Greased Lightning: Video Of A Rubik's Cube Solving Machine Solving A Cube In 0.38 Seconds

March 7, 2018

This is a video of a Rubik's Cube solving machine solving a cube in 0.38 seconds (previously: a machine solving one in 0.637 seconds), which is then replayed at 0.25X speed (which is still way too fast), then replayed at 0.03X speed, which Goldilocks would probably be happy with. At regular speed it doesn't even look real. Kind of like me whenever I show up for a first date and my date can't believe it's possible for a person to look so much more handsome than their dating profile photos. *shrug* What can I say? "You can be honest and say you used pictures of Shrek." I wanted to set the bar low.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Carsten, who agrees there has got to be a way to mod this thing into a pleasure model.

    Saving this for next time it's a pitiful human record version

    20 moves. That’s at least three too many if memory serves.

    under promise and over deliver. I like your style GW

  • Doog

    I think modding it into a pleasure model is a recipe for disaster

  • Chaz Gomez

    A video like this comes out every month... does anyone really care anymore about solving these cubes?

  • GeneralDisorder

    I stopped caring right around the time I learned that competitive Rubik's was a thing.

  • Bling Nye

    Ernő Rubik is pretty stoked on it I bet. He invented it, and it took him a month to solve it the first time.

  • GeneralDisorder

    What a retard. They come presolved in the box.

  • Bling Nye

    Made me lol. Fun fact, the Rubik's cube can be rearranged in 43 quintillion different ways. That's a billion billion, or one metric fuck ton depending on conversion factors.

  • Meh

    Ridiculously fast. And machines kind of take away the fun of learning algorithms.

    Who is this AL? and where did he get his rythm?
