Tilted Twister solves Rubik’s cubes

Jason over at Haqckszine found the Tilted Twister, a LEGO NXT robot that can solve a Rubik’s Cube without the help of a PC. It’s really impressive to watch!

Just place the scrambled cube on Tilted Twister’s turntable. An ultrasonic sensor detects its presence and starts to read the colors of the cube faces using a light sensor. The robot turns and tilts the cube in order to read all the faces of the cube. It then calculates a solution and executes the moves by turning, tilting and twisting the cube.

Building instructions and source code are available on Hans Andersson’s site.

    Watch out! Your outstanding density of consonants just might start a plosive black hole from which no uvula can escape.
