Robotics Monday: NXT Rubik's Cube Solver

Name of Model: Lego Rubik Utopy: NXT Rubik's cube solver

I know I have previously featured a Rubik's Cube Solver, but this one improves on that idea quite a bit. The design of this robot is much simpler, much trendier (note the all-studless LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT base) and much more efficient at scanning and solving a Rubik's Cube. There was no cheating used here, either. This is just a beautiful design and a well-thought out algorithm. The write-up offered here is quite thorough and well-worth a read, so I'll just leave this post at that and let you read about it firsthand.
