Rubik’s Cube Solved in .305 Seconds

The fastest recorded human time to solve a Rubik’s Cube is Max Park’s 3.15 seconds — but Mitsubishi’s TOKUFASTbot has solved one in about 1/10th as much time. That’s about 200 times faster than a robot could 15 years ago. Popular Science, “In blink of an eye, robot sets new Rubik’s cube Guinness World Record”:…

    Sono ispirato dalla passione e dall’intelletto dei partecipanti. È incoraggiante vedere la voce delle donne ascoltata e valorizzata.👅

    I wonder how long they let the computer analyze and plan its moves it before starting.

      There’s a 15 second time limit in the human contests so I hope it’s not more than that

      You can find a nearly optimal solution in a few 100 of ms.
      All cubes can be solved in 20 moves or less (called god’s number). Most can be solved in 18 moves. The usual algorithms will find immediately a 24 moves solution. You can spend a bit more time improving it, but beyond a point it’s not worth it.
      Oh wait, this information is from 10 years ago. You can adjust for modern hardware. 🙂

    This would be cool to see in slo-mo. You’d likely see the cube bending and flexing under such high speed stress.

      The video of it is in slow motion. In real time, its a very brief blur.

    *Robots are stealing our Rubik’s Cube jobs!*

    If you think AI and automation can never take your job; you’re already (probably) mentally behind the curve…

    Why did that animation have stickers on the inside of the cube? lol

    that’s so cool.

    What blows my mind: This record was broken by a Rubics Cube robot, chess robots can beat the world’s best chess players and so on. But all human records have been set by more or less the same body. The same tool was used for gripping both the rubics cube in the fastes solve and the barbell in the heaviest deadlift ever.
    Today we can build robots to outperform us in most specific tasks, but nothing that comes close to the versatility of our own bodies (yet?). So in a way, we still inhabit the most capable robots on earth.

    Sure,only the robot had perfect conditions minimizing friction .
    In reality the human record holder is faster since it takes milliseconds for him to decide his moves.

    I’ve been expecting this moment since the record has been getting quicker. There has to be a physical limit to how quickly it can actually be done. I didn’t expect it to be a third of a second though!

    Only took 80 years

      What are you talking about?
      Transistors are 70 years old. The rubik’s cube is 40 years old.

    Now when do we get robots to help w/ chores and home repairs?

Cats Want FAP.

It turns out adult cats make pies or biscuits with their front paws as a behavior directly linked to feeding as kittens. The kneading motion stimulates their mother’s mammary glands to produce milk. As the kittens suckle, the mother releases the Feline Appeasing Pheromone also known as FAP which relaxes her kittens and helps them…

As the kittens suckle, the mother releases the Feline Appeasing Pheromone also known as FAP which relaxes her kittens and helps them bond with their mother.
