Now the fight is between the fully automated, super-tech and super fast robots. Solving the Rubik’s Cube is no more a brainstorming time pass, but it has staked the ingenuity of geeks, who constantly strive to develop the fastest Rubik’s Cube Solving robot. Let’s checkout from the list below, which one is the leading Rubik’s bot so far.
7. Tilted Twister

Built from the Lego Mindstorms NXT Retail-kit, the Tilted Twister one minute in scanning the cube, about 40 seconds in calculating the solution and another five minutes in executing the moves. So, on an average it solves the cube in ix minutes.

6. Rucus
