in my day we just peeled off the stickers & rearranged them

There is a remarkable thing here about a Lego robot machine that solves the Rubik's Cube.

There's even video from that Screensavers show to go along. This is the kind of science I wish I could do. Why can't I have a homemade robot that solves the Rubik's Cube?

A few things learned from watching video:

1. You can lubricate a Rubik's Cube.
2. There's a Swedish Rubik's Cube champion (paging Joss Whedon; get this on TV immediately).
3. Saying you're going to make a Lego robot dedicated to solving the Rubik's Cube is received by your friends like saying you're going to quit smoking.

So, wow. Have you guys ever made anything like this? What's the neatest/most obscure/most robotic thing you've ever made?
