Android phone powered Lego robot solves Rubik’s cube

DeviceGuru reports that A Lego Mindstorms robotics kit controlled by an HTC Nexus One smartphone successfully untangled a Rubik’s Cube puzzle in 12.5 seconds at this week’s ARM developer conference in Silicon Valley. ARM principal engineer David Gilday masterminded the robotic Rubik’s Cube demo. Here’s a YouTube video showing Gilday demonstrating his latest 3x3x3 cube-solver. The robot itself does not need to be amazing fast because the best solution for a rubix cube is always less then 20 moves.

    Universal Robots Vision-Based LEGO Stacker

    [Thomas Kølbæk Jespersen] and his classmates at Aalborg University’s Robot Vision course used MATLAB code and URscript to program a Universal Robots UR5 to stack up Duplo bricks. The Duplo bricks are stacked into low-fi Simpsons characters — yellow for Homer’s head, white for his shirt, and blue for his pants, for example.
