This Robotic Rubik's Cube Easily Solves the Difficult Puzzle Box

The Rubik's Cube is perhaps the most iconic and frustrating puzzle ever made, but a new robotic Rubik's Cube makes short work of the perceived unsolvable puzzle. Crafted by a Japanese creator Human Controller, this robotic device joins his pantheon of other robots all displayed on YouTube. Driving this robotic Rubik's Cube is a 3D-printed core attached to servo motors. The result is poltergeist-like operation as the servos and core work diligently to automatically solve the puzzle cube.

The creator of the robotic Rubik's cube has not explained the computer technology driving the cube but several sleuths have already discovered how the cube operates. The servos essentially memorize how the cube has been shuffled and will then reverse the steps to complete the puzzle.
