It may be the most improbable thread title of the year, but it's actually true ...

    Wow... Read the comments, it seems that it can solve it in an average of about 25 moves, which is much more impressive than the time, which humans can get close to, but not beat.

    The fact that it uses 4 Lego NXT computers, a smartphone running Android, and Bluetooth to tie it all together, and that it just works over and over, is impressive...

    I for one welcome our new Robotic Lego Overlords... :)

    Now that is an impressive use of Mindstorms!

    I bet the machines that make LEGO are pretty advanced too!

    What is harder: solving a Rubik's Cube in 25 moves, or moulding and dosing a 2000 piece set many thousands of times without missing a single piece?

    Do you think when the RLO's take over they will be lenient towards AFOLs or will they see as hoarding slavers?! :o :o

    Someone's invented a much harder rubiks cube...

    ... and so someone's invented a much cleverer Logo robot to solve it ... amazing!
