The Guinness World Records has awarded the fastest time to solve a Rubik’s Cube to American teenager Lucas Etter, who solved it in 4.904 seconds, but he probably can’t beat this machine that can solve it in 1.04 seconds.
Jay Flatland and Paul Rose, two guys from Kansas City, developed a machine that can solve it in record time, using motors, webcams, and 3D printed parts. The machine solves the cube using four USB webcams that feed information to a cube-solving algorithm called Kociemba.
The guys shared a video on YouTube showing how the cube solves it.
The two hope to have the time certified by the Guinness World Records next week.
