Watch a Nokia N95 smartphone drive this LEGO Speedcubing robot (big sport in the robotics nerd world). Constructed
entirely from LEGO parts, it includes a vision system for ascertaining the cube's state while solving a 3x3x3
Rubik's cube from any start position in under 20 seconds, including the initial image capture. Thanks to a
passionate, dedicated user base, LEGO has come a long way since introducing the blocks in 1949. They now carry a
complete line of robotics devices, including processors, motors, and vision devices.
Here is a nifty bit
of trivia for you:
LEGO is an combining of the
two Danish words leg and godt, meaning play well.
