MINDSTORMS NXT Rubik’s Cube solver by Hans Andersson

Hans Andersson’s Tilted Twister is a Rubik’s Cube solver built from only parts available in the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT retail set. Here’s what Hans says:

An ultrasonic sensor detects its presence and starts to read the colors of the cube faces using a light sensor. The robot turns and tilts the cube in order to read all the faces of the cube. It then calculates a solution and executes the moves by turning, tilting and twisting the cube.

If you want to build your own Rubik’s Cube solver, you can check out Hans’ instructions, executables, and source code on his Web site.

And don’t miss the MINDSTORMS NXT Rubik’s Cube solver we featured a year ago, by Daniele Benedettelli.

    Absolutely brilliant! This is so simple, and yet so complex… and that it is built with only a basic NXT set (or with Color Sensor, alt. build) is incredible! No.. scratch that… that he shares the instructions and code with the World for no fee is incredible!

    This gets my vote for “MOC of the Year” (so far). Extremely well-played!!!
