Tilted Twister - A Rubik's Cube-Solving Robot Made from Legos

What this cube-solving robot lacks in speed, it makes up for in charm. The robot is constructed solely of parts from Lego's Mindstorms NXT kit. And it works alone, no outside computer help.

From the creator: 

Tilted Twister solves Rubik's cube fully automatically. Just place the scrambled cube on Tilted Twister's turntable. An ultrasonic sensor detects its presence and starts to read the colors of the cube faces using a light sensor. The robot turns and tilts the cube in order to read all the faces. It then calculates a solution and executes the moves by turning, tilting and twisting the cube.

Performance
Scanning the cube: 1 minute
Calculating a solution: 20 - 40 seconds
Executing the moves: 1 - 5 minutes. Average 4.5 minutes (60 faceturns)
Average total time: 6 minutes
