Speedcubers can solve a Rubik’s Cube in less than a minute, while world-class competitors often do it in less than 10 seconds. But how fast can a robot do this?

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation’s Component Manufacturing Design Center has set a world record for solving the fastest-spinning puzzle cube. The robot, designed by a Japanese company, completed the task in less than a second.

The record-breaking event took place in Tokyo on May 21st. The robot’s performance was captured on a video and the same was shared by the Guinness Book of World Records, which said: The fastest robot to solve a rotating puzzle cube. The clip showed the robot solving a standard 3x3x3 puzzle cube in just 0.305 seconds – faster than the human eye can track.

The video went viral and eventually gained a large following.

One user commented under the footage: ‘Rubik’s Cube solved before I blinked’

Another stated ‘genuinely insane how fast that is.’.

‘This is what we call record breaking!’ the third comment read.

Someone else suggested ‘GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS (Robots Edition)’.

The leader of this record-breaking effort is Mr. Tokui of Mitsubishi Electric’s Component Manufacturing Engineering Center, where he normally focuses on engine development, according to GWR.

Despite his confidence in the quality of his products, Tokui wanted to impress people by breaking the record. After seeing videos of the previous record holder, Mr. Tokui believed their engine was better.

This made him think that they might break the speed record. But breaking the record wasn’t just about fast engines, it required all the parts of the machine to work together smoothly. Getting any low speed was difficult. Tokui said, ‘Saving time was hard work but it was also fun. I never lost interest in the project.’

However, the puzzle cube could not keep up with the speed of the robot. So they kept working on the machine to keep the puzzle from getting stuck. But at the first official test, the puzzle stuck again.

In the second attempt, the robot achieved a time that had never been achieved in training times and achieved a Guinness World Record.

Mr. Tokui thanked his team for this milestone and believed that ‘our products can make the world even better.’ ‘I hope the record will let people everywhere know what our products are capable of,’ he added.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the fastest average time for a person to solve a 3x3x3 puzzle cube is 4.48 seconds by Yiheng Wang of China.
