Rubik’s Cube Solver Made Out of Popsicle Sticks and an Arduino

Rubik’s Cube Solver Made Out of Popsicle Sticks and an Arduino

[Matt] recently learned both how to solve a Rubik’s cube and the basics of an Arduino. Putting the two together, he decided to try his hand at making an automatic Rubik’s Cube solver! We’ve seen this done quite a few times using LEGO Mindstorms , but we’re much more impressed with [Matt's] clever use of popsicle sticks and mechanical linkages…. The device uses just two servos. One to rotate the base, and the second to flip the cube over. He’s using an Arduino UNO (R3) with 2 Hitec HS-311 hobby servos, some popsicle sticks, hot glue, a paper towel roll, and a bit of plywood. He wrote the code to solve the cube himself, and has shared it on GitHub — but he didn’t stop there and decided to create a GUI to go with it using Python. It’s not that fast, but it’ll solve a cube in about 20 minutes — stick around after the break to see it in action! Turning A Building Into A Rubik’s...
