Lego Mindstorms Cubestormer solves Rubiks Cube in under 12 seconds

"The Worlds Fastest Lego Mindstorms RCX Speedcubing Robot. Built entirely from lego elements now scanning and solving any 3x3x3 Rubik's cube combination in under 12 seconds."

Humans are still faster, but this is one impressive build.

Just don't give that thing legs or it will solve your face.
I believe that the Lego vs. K'nex debate has just been resolved.

The cubestormer is certainly a major feat of engineering and programming.  Legos is no a child's toy that used to be, it has since gained "street cred" among engineers and tinkerers.
I built a "tilted twister" but I didn't have a colour sensor so couldn't get it to scan correctly. :(
Up until now, I thought this one was impressive.  Just goes to show what I rube I am! (Pun intended.)

Interesting that there's more than one of these things - perhaps many more (especially if there was a competition somewhere)!

As a gadget, it's almost entirely pointless to own (or even to reproduce) though. Its real value lies in having designed (and constructed) it the first time. Quite the opposite of most(?) instructables.

Good grief...

"Humans are still faster"

Not many.  And not by much.

No kidding.

Despite my fondness for logic puzzles, I have yet to spend the time to solve a Rubik's cube.

Logic puzzles?  You might actually enjoy the Wikipedia article on Rubik's group theory.

Ewwww....  I said logic, not pure math!
