This Netbook and Lego Solves Rubik's Cube in 12s

We've covered Rubik's cube-solving Nokia smartphones, but when you want it done faster, you're going to need some faster hardware.

By faster hardware, it could be both stronger physical hardware to manipulate the cube as well as a more capable computational device.

In this video, the creators used Lego Mindstorm bits and an Acer Aspire One netbook to make what is believed to be the fastest solve yet for a computer – 12 seconds.

Impressive, but can it beat us humans? Not yet.

    it's all in the programing... the speed of the ser\/o's is going to be the real limitation once they finally get the programming down pat. I can see someone getting motors so fast one day, that it actually busts the cube. :-p
