A Japanese robot has solved a Rubik's Cube in world record time, thanks in part to artificial intelligence (AI) that helps it to distinguish between the puzzle's colored panels, reports Live Science.

The new record is around 10 times quicker than the record for a human solving the puzzle—3.13 seconds, set by Max Park in June 2023. 

The entire process happens in less time than the blink of a human eye.  

The record-breaking robot, "TOKUI Fast Accurate Synchronized Motion Testing Robot" (TOKUFASTbot), was created by Japan's Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to help improve factory automation equipment used in electronics production. 

It has six arms connected to a multi-axis motor and a high-speed camera, both of which are connected to an industrial computer. 

The system is capable of turning each arm 90 degrees in just 0.009 seconds, Mitsubishi representatives said in a statement.
