While I’m on a Robot Kick

Robot Solving Rubic's CubeThe WIRED Gadget Lab headline reads, Robot Solves Rubik’s Cube in 6 Seconds.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries has serious problems on its mind: getting a robot to beat humans at solving Rubik’s cube being among the weightiest. According to TokyoMango, the robot looks at the six sides, calculates the solution in about 1 second, and then sets to work. Unlike a human, it doesn’t need a second look, and getting to the solution is simply a matter of mechanical speed. I can imagine many profitable uses for such a device.

It seems that robots may be doing more than just carrying things and us around.  It’s an old story to Science Fiction.
