LEGO Robot Solves Rubik's Cube All By Itself

Hans Andersson bought a LEGO Mindstorms kit for his daughters, but got caught up in making this spectacular robot himself. Meet Tilted Twister, a LEGO robot that does what most of us can't do: solve a Rubik's cube all by itself!

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. It then calculates a solution and executes the moves by turning, tilting and twisting the cube.
