This self-solving Rubik's Cube® is constructed entirely from LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 and Technic elements.
SMART-CUBE was conceived in 2009 soon after David was inspired to begin creating LEGO Rubik's Cube solving robots. However, after many prototypes, it only started to became a reality when his great friend Mike brought his mechanical genius to the joint project during 2016.
The internal structure is somewhat different from the design used in conventional Rubik's style cubes so that most of the connecting surfaces are flat rather than rounded and can be constructed from regular LEGO elements. Mike and David refer to the grooves and hooks used in the mechanism as "grooks".
