Watch This Robot Set the New Rubik's Cube World Record

Don't blink, or you might miss this machine solve a Rubik's Cube in the world's fastest time.

This machine, powered by chips from Infineon Technologies, set the record for solving at just 0.637 seconds! It blasted the previous record of 0.89 seconds handily.

Didn't catch it the first time? Don't worry. The video includes a slow-mo breakdown of exactly how it happened.

While machines are widely regarded as being more efficient (and clearly faster) than humans, the in-person Rubik's record is nothing to scoff at either. Teenager Lucas Etter set the world record in 2015 with a time of 4.90 seconds. You can watch his performance (and slow-mo) here.
