Robot sibling rivalry

An ARM-Powered robot will soon attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest time solving a Rubik’s cube.

The robot, which is named The CUBESTORMER 3, uses an ARM-powered Samsung Galaxy S4 in order to analyse the Rubik’s cube and instruct on how next to turn the cube.

Unfortunately, the record is likely to spark a family feud as the previous record of 5.27 seconds is held by the robot’s predecessor the CubeStormer II.

“We are very confident the robot will break the record,” said Dominic Vergine, head of corporate responsibility at ARM, “The new robot can think three times faster than its older brother.”

The record attempt will take place at the Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham on Saturday March 15.
