Hackers use Linux to solve Magic Cube in 1.2 seconds

Have you ever tried to solve the Magic Cube? Did it work? I confess I could never get all sides right, but I keep trying … one day I can. The Rubik's Cube, as also known, seems to have generated a very curious project with the intention of solving it, some hackers have created a machine capable of eliminating this problem without much effort, in fact they have achieved quite a milestone in less than One and a half seconds the machine can solve the magic cube!

Hackers create machine to solve the magic cube

By printing the components used in the "magic cube assembler robot" on a 3D printer and using Arduno, along with Linux, North American engineers Jay Flatland and Paul Rose were able to produce a machine capable of solving the puzzle in just over a second!

Looking at the video I couldn't pinpoint the exact distro (if you know let us know in the comments), but we can clearly see Gnome 3 in Fallback mode. The human record for the Magic Cube resolution belongs to a 14-year-old boy named Lucas Etter, who managed to solve the problem within 5 seconds.
