Update: See comments for the details on David Gilday and Mike Dobson setting another Guinness World Record and Dave Gilday setting 2 more!


Are you a Lego fan? A Rubik's Cube fan?  An ARM fan?  A Samsung fan?  Have you seen David Gilday and Mike Dobson's past Rubik's Cube videos?  Then you are in store for a treat!

 

THEY ARE GOING TO TRY TO BREAK THEIR OWN RECORD!!!

 

The CUBESTORMER 3 robot which uses ARM Processors technology will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for solving a Rubik's Cube at the Big Bang Fair being held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, on Saturday (March 15). The new robot employs an ARM-powered Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone equipped with an Samsung Electronics Exynos 5 Octa application processor with an eight-core ARM big.LITTLE implementation featuring four ARM Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 processors to analyze the cube and instruct four robotic hands to do the manipulations.

 

 

In case you missed the excitement last time, Dave and Mike created a sensation when they built a Lego Mindstorm, powered by a Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone, that beat the Guinness World Record for solving a Rubik’s cube in 5.27 seconds.
