A Robot That Can Solve Rubik's Cube!

It's a robot that solves Rubik's cubes! Eric, my (best friend) Kim's boyfriend, made it. Well, he put it together following instructions and items from a kit, but still, it's a fucking robot that solves Rubik's cubes!
Here it is scanning all sides of the cube, determining the layout of the colored squares.

Here it is rotating it so it can scan the other sides.

Still scanning...

And now the power of math and technology come together to amaze the shit out of me.

"Game over"...or so it says when it's finished.

[Note: it's not perfect. Four of the six sides were solved (completely) 2 out of 2 times.

Of course, the robot absolutely fucked up on this one. So disappointing.
