This Mechanical Rubik’s Cube Solves Itself

Engineers and the technically-minded alike have long been fascinated with solving the Rubik’s Cube. This quintessential puzzle toy is the focus of several world records and the frustration of millions who can’t figure out how to solve it. The world record for solving the toy invented in 1980 is currently 4.22 seconds – a time that is crazy to even think about.

While watching humans solve the cube incredibly fast is certainly entertaining, have you ever seen a Rubik’s Cube solve itself? In the video below, you’ll see a custom mechanical Rubik’s cube that memorizes the way it has been scrambled and using a series of servos, it can quickly solve itself. Check it out below.
