    The Cool Robot Thread

    Real or fictional, pics or videos, post yours...

    Special mention goes to the Mars Rover Opportunity, spec'd to last 90 days, just completed ten years exploring the surface of Mars.

    And of course Curiosity is still there.

    The Chinese Lunar Rover Jade Rabbit seems to be in trouble as of today halfway into its three month mission. I'm guessing this won't be their last mission though, will be interesting to see what they send up next.

    That reminds me I should finish Portal 2.

    Rubik's Cube solvers, apparently a thing in Lego Robotics, who knew?

    Multicuber 999 (9x9x9 solver)


    And the evolution of CubeStormer...

    CubeStormer (I) solves 3x3x3 in 10.7 seconds (another video has a 9.2 second solve of a random cube)


    CubeStormer II solves 3x3x3 in 5.35 seconds


    Cubestormer III grabs the record for 3x3x3 yesterday solving 3x3x3 in 3.253 seconds

    Eventually Robocop will become autonomous and seek vengeance, because it will be superior to it's master.
