He added that one of the secrets to beating the previous robot's best time was using better motors. The bot uses six Kollmorgen ServoDisc U9-series motors in order to solve the Rubik's Cube at unheard-of speeds.

Readers of a certain age will, at some point in their lives, have become so frustrated trying to solve the classic 80s Rubik's Cube puzzle that they've flung it against a wall.

The pair largely attributes the impressive time to using better motors.

Death Toll Due To Flu Now Stands At 184 In Arkansas
The Citizen reported that complications from the flu are estimated to kill between 290 000 and 650 000 people each year. Flu symptoms include a fever of 102 degrees or higher, a dry or hacking cough, severe body aches, and chills.

In that 0.38 seconds the robot performed 20 individual moves, as Rubik's cubes do not allow two sides to move at the same time.

While speed is important to setting records when it comes to solving a Rubik's Cube, equally necessary is the intelligence and capability to recognize the patterns and quickly arrive at a solution.

Mr. Beer is considered to have made a world record by creating a robot that finished the Rubik's puzzle in 0.637 seconds. The creator also noted that several cubes were broken during their tuning process. "But the tuning process is really time consuming since the debugging needs to be done with the high-speed camera, and the mistakes often break the cube".

Alexa, Please Stop Laughing: Amazon Says It's Fixing Device's Unprompted Cackles
Apparently Alexa has been hearing things incorrectly, and they have been misinterpreted as someone asking her to laugh. Others have said that Alexa has laughed after being asked to turn on the lights - and may have misheard the command.

Every movement of the robot takes just 15 milliseconds. In October 2017, Korean wunderkind SeungBeom Cho set a new world record of an incredible 4.59 seconds.

The complexity of the scrambled cube had to meet the standards of the World Cube Association. "The machine can definitely go faster", Katz said. That honour now appears to be in jeopardy, however, as a pair of engineers have demonstrated a new robot that can solve a Rubik's Cube in nearly half that time: A mere 0.38 seconds.

A special "speed cube" had to be used to reduce friction between the moving parts and keep the time to a minimum.

Jack Wilshere and Arsenal continue contract stalemate
Arsène Wenger has maintained that he wants Wilshere to stay and joked that the player was still looking for his pen. But since making the offer, they have given Mesut Ozil a huge raise, almost tripling his earnings.

Korean SeungBeom Cho smashed his previous personal best of 6.54 seconds.
