rubiks and legos

this is pretty cool. vision systems + robotics + kids toys = lego's rubiks cube solver.

The Tilted Twister

obviously not a speed cuber, but very impressive, given it takes a scan to initially encode the algorithms. this is done visually based on the colors, so it must have a pretty smart vision system.

and it's all done through lego mindstorms. if you have a kid, definitely, definitely buy him/her a lego mindstorms kit at an early age. it will bode well for the future of all humanity.
