* In less than 1.2 seconds. 1 second, if you round down.
Engineers Flatland and Rose are in the process of applying for an official world record for the fastest Rubik's cube solving robot, or indeed the fastest solver of any kind. Their robot can solve any scrambled state of the cube in <=1.2s, often much faster.
Their key optimization is to attach the stepper motors that do the turning directly to the cube by drilling holes in the cube's sides.
I welcome our new cube-solving overlords. Do you?
