Below you will see a Rubik’s cube being solved in just 0.38 seconds by a machine.
The registered time of the Rubik’s cube being solved derives from the moment the key press is registered on the computer, to when the last face of the Rubik’s cube is flipped. It includes image capture and computation time, as well as actually moving the cube. For reference, the current world record is/was 0.637 seconds.
The machine was designed and built by Ben Katz and his business partner Jared.
The machine can definitely go faster, but the tuning process is really time consuming since debugging needs to be done with the high speed camera, and mistakes often break the cube. Looking at the high-speed video, each 90 degree move takes ~10 ms, but the machine is actually only doing a move every ~15 ms.
