This video was shot at the Maker Faire, a sort of do-it-yourself science fair recently held in NYC.
Apparently you can scramble up the cube any way you like, and set it on RuBot’s platform. RuBot picks it up, inspects the sides to determine the configuration, and then solves the cube! RuBot must have been happy when it was recently announced that every position of the Rubik’s cube can be solved in 20 moves or less.
I’m not sure if Rubot can solve 4×4’s or 5×5’s cubes. And I’m not sure why they made him look so creepy.
