You can now build a machine to solve a Rubik's cube thanks to Raspberry Pi

rubik's cube

The Rubik's cube is a toy that we all have, have had or have simply played with. More and more "chosen" people manage to solve this cube, but there are also many who still cannot solve this simple toy.

For this, there are machines that solve the rubik's cube by ourselves. Until now, there were machines that had a mechanism similar to 3D printers and needed high knowledge for their construction, but this has its days numbered. Recently the Otvinta company has launched Rubik's Cube Solver, a machine that we can build ourselves.

To build this machine we only need a Raspberry Pi board with Windows IoT, a specific program for this platform and a 3D printer.

The construction of this machine is very simple because we only have to print the components or parts with the 3D printer and connect the parts and parts to a Raspberry Pi board. Once we load the program on our raspberry computer, we have to place the Rubik's cube on the base and the machine will take care of solving everything.

The impression of the pieces as well as their construction usually has a duration of more than 70 hours. A very long time for any end user, but possibly, if we have not solved the famous cube, the number of hours can become more and more or directly we abandon the toy in some hidden box at home.

The construction guide as well as the list of components and the specific software for Windows IoT can be obtained from this link since it is public. The Otvinta company has released such information so that everyone can build this peculiar machine.

The truth is that it is not a great project or a project that solves a great global evil, but it does will help more than one to get rid of that nailed thorn what caused the Rubik's cube Do not you think?
