I thought some of you might be interested in a video of LEGO MicroCuber.

A Rubik's Cube-style puzzle solving robot with a twist! Enjoy :)

I love the simplicity of the cube turning. What is the average number of moves for a solution?

Thanks.

The average number of moves for the algorithm I use for MicroCuber is about 25.

There isn't enough memory in this smartphone to use the more efficient two-phase solver that I developed for CubeStormer II that averages around 21 moves :)

Awesome. Please take this to the UK Open 2012. I would love to see it in real life. :)

Really nice! I love the unique way that you came up with to compensate for the space between the cube and the wall of the turning platform. What's next? Tuttminx? :lol:
