Something else Basil will no longer have to do for himself – play with his toys:

Mike Dobson and David Gilday built the 3rd robot only with speed in mind, with the brain behind the robot belonging to none other than the Samsung Galaxy S4 which has been tricked out to use an Exynos octa-core processor with four Cortex A15 and four Cortext A7 processors. These control eight Lego Mindstorm actuators.

Gilday said “we knew Cubestormer 3 had the potential to beat the existing record but with the robot performing physical operations quicker than the human eye can see there’s always an element of risk.” Yeah. that fast.

    If that robot could flawlessly cook bacon, I’ll wager Basil would go for it.

    The bacon, that is.

    Stay back from the robots playing jump-rope at 60,000 r.p.m.

    Beware robots trying to pull a quarter out of little Timmy’s ear.

    And of course, robots playing “Global Thermonuclear War.”
