I have stumbled upon more rubiks cube solving robot footage on YouTube, and thought it work sharing.
In fact, JP Brown’s Lego cube solver may actually aid me with inspiration for the chuck mechanism for my lathe.
First this video: Cable In The Classroom - the Screen Savers with footage of JP Browns cubesolver at work.
Second, another solver, this time in Fischertechnik - FischerTechnik Cube Solver . It is much slower than the other attempts seen, although it is also pretty different in the way that the outer limbs “jostle” the cube into position, the top limb clamps down, and then the turntable underneath rotates, holding the cube in a square depression. It is definitely worth seeing.
