I hope people realize that the rubik's cube has to be in a set starting position for this to look like the smart phone/robot solved it. The rubik cube colors in the robot part doesn't match the ones on the phone as it is "solving" it. In other words Fake

well there is like only 108 ways to solve one. It's based off a few algorithms. Phones today have more computing power then some computers 5 years ago so I don't see why it's a strech.

Also I opened the gif in an editor program and the colors match up, the orange just looks yellowish on the LCD screen of the phone

I'll take your word for the color part but as for the solving part your comment only helps to prove the point I was trying to make. An algorithm gets programmed into the phone which then tells the robot hands how many turns and twists to make which "solves" the cube.It's no different than an automated robot putting car parts on cars as they roll down the assembly line

and you don't think the 'computer' can look and learn the colored areas and add this into its solution?

thefunk what rinzler is saying (that I get now after reading his reply) is that the phone isn't solving it per se. It's like it looks at the color pattern and then says if x is y solve for z. So basically the programming makes the robot solve the puzzle which doesn't make it fake it just shows that the programming works

I guess to put it in a more clear and concise manner: Every possible solution is already programmed in the phone because there are only so many ways to solve the cube based on a few algorithms. The programming is there, the phone is basically a liaison between the unsolved cube and robot. It snaps a pic of the cube then tells the arms how to solve

I guess that wasn't as concise but whatever. It still doesn't make it any less fake :/

I never said it was fake, :) I only disagreed with the starting paragraph that stated the cube had to be 'in a set starting position'.
