Fastest Rubik's cube solver: CubeStormer

Fastest Rubik's cube solver named CubeStormer. Absolutely incredible...
I believe the solution is calculated on a PC though, not on the NXT itself.

  2. This is awesome! I teach at a summer technology camp, iD Tech Camps, and I know my students in the Lego Mindstorm course would love this video. That looks like it took some time to put together. :)

  3. I’m a new one with LEGO NXT robot . I will participate in 2011 World Robot Olympiad Regular Category, Junior High Level.

    The mission is stair Climber.

    Please, help me in building structure and programing the NXT robot to finish this mission.

    I add YouTube link which inspire and assist participants in the Regular Category.

  4. This is way cool! haha. Although, yes it obviously uses a PC to analyze the video. The computer is probably sending down commands to the NXT, which in this is case is just acting like a "dumb" device since its doing very little computing power.

    Setting up a program to control your NXT isn't terribly difficult - I would bet the most time would be doing the analysis on the Rubik's cube in video, but again - this is pretty impressive.

    A great writeup on sending direct commands to the NXT can be read here:

    It goes over the basics and if you play around with it, you would be surprised at how complicated and cool of a device you can make!

    hope this helps :).
