Rubik's cube solving robot

This blog is dedicated to build a Rubik's cube solving robot. I'll not give you any guarantee to even update this blog or finish it. I just want to share and discuss some ideas.

The first thing I did was to buy 3 Rubik's cubes at taobao.com (a kind of Chinese Ebay), each around 10 RMB.  I bought 3 pieces, because I wanted to avoid one or two samples are getting damaged during my experiments and evaluations and I needed then to find exactly the same kind of probes for my experiments again, which can be quite annoying.
