  • Engineers at Mitsubishi created the Rubik's Cube-solving robot
  • Incredible footage shows the robot completing the puzzle in just 0.305 seconds

It's a puzzle that can keep most people entertained for hours.

But the Rubik's Cube is light work for one robot, which has officially broken the Guinness World Record for the fastest robot to solve a rotating puzzle cube.

The bot can complete the puzzle in just 0.305 seconds - so it's safe to say that if you blink, you'll miss it!

That's around 10 times faster than the quickest human, who is able to solve the puzzle in an impressive 3.13 seconds.

The 'fastest robot to solve a rotating puzzle cube' record has been popular for years.

Back in 2009, the record stood at one minute and four seconds, but it has gradually gotten shorter over the years.

In 2016, the record finally broke the one-second barrier.

Now, a team of engineers at Mitsubishi Electric Corporation have raised the bar, after setting an impressive new record.

'I checked the videos of the previous record holder, and I felt that the motor we have is better than theirs,' said Tokui, who led the record attempt.

'So I was confident that we could beat them with speed.'

The robot features a set of motors that work in combination with one another to move the cube around at lightning speed.

However, during the testing process, the team encountered an unexpected issue - the cube struggled to keep up with the speed of the robot.

During the first official record attempt, the puzzle jammed up.

Thankfully, with some fine-tuning, the team was able to resolve the issue, and nailed it the second time.

'I know that our products can make the world an even better place,' Tokui said.

'I hope the record will allow people everywhere to know what our products are capable of.'
