Lego NXT Rubik Cube Solver

The most impressive part of this Lego NXT Rubik Cube Solver is that the NXT module does the computing that solves the cube! I wouldn’t have thought that would have been possible without having a PC do the calculations.

Video after the jump.

"Tilted Twister solves Rubik’s cube fully automatically. 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."

    There isn’t allot to compute, all the NXT has to do is perform a number of so-called “algorithms” depending on the state of the cube and these algorithms solve it. There are only about 8 move patterns which you have to remember to solve it so no calculations are really needed.
