Not all that impressed. The only impressive feat here is building the lego machine, and programming software that makes it all happen. The fact that the ARM processor happening to be the unit doing all the math is meaningless in my mind.

It's neat, but most people don't realize that solving a rubiks cube requires nothing more than memorizing algorithms. Probably shouldn't be too difficult for a computer to do..

Jane McEntegartI was pretty proud of myself for cheating the classic puzzle


That's not cheating. That's lateral thinking.

The lego technic are far more impressive than the arm processor running the robot. In college, we used zylog z80 processors for all our robotics labs... it doesn't take much to run a robot.

lol, sorry, but I think that's great. How many of you can solve the 4x4x4 cube, build a lego machine like that, or program software to run all of it?
Personally, hats off to the guy that did it.

Jeez, guys lighten up... it really doesn't matter if it was an Arm powered N95, or Deep Blue solving it... its still a cool use of innovation an technology and an entertaining video.

I can do the programming part but building LEGOs,etc is harder.

The older Mindstorms sets were also used to solve the classic 3x3 Cube. This is a pretty slick iteration, though, and it probably doesn't even require Vaseline on the cube to run.

I wonder how different the response would've been had it been an Apple iPhone instead that was used? People probably would've been frothing at the mouth with hype.

It's good to see some articles showing that, y'know, there ARE other smartphones out there.

Nokia phone sales have fallen. I wonder why he wanted to make software for an ancient phone like Nokia? Nokia has lost the game, Android, Dell and iPhone rules!

You need an i7-8xx core to do that - 130W thermal dissipation will cook whatever you want.

I couldn't agree more! And have you seen the follow-on LEGO "Speedcuber" video that was posted yesterday on the ARMflix YouTube channel...? :-)
