Don’t blink! Robot solves Rubik’s Cube in 0.38 seconds

This robot can solve a Rubik’s Cube in the blink of an eye.

Made by messieurs Ben Katz and Jared Di Carlo, the robot uses several motors and two PlayStation Eye cameras. The researchers say with further debugging they hope to improve the time. See their development blog for info on the machine, including outtakes when things went awry.

Address is Approximate

If you enjoyed the Cinemascapes by Aaron Hobson, you may like the direction that Address is Approximate takes.

Shot on a Canon 5D Mk II, Address is Approximate is an endearing (and a tad depressing) short film that was produced, animated, and edited by Tom Jenkins of UK-based production company, The Theory. The stop-motion animation tells the story of a cute toy robot who uses Google Street View to trade the confines of the office for a driving adventure along the Pacific coast of the United States.
