Android Smartphone Solves 7x7x7 Rubiks Cube

By mixing a LEGO NXT kit and a Droid smartphone, the 7x7x7 Rubiks cube has been solved in 38 minutes and 53 seconds. That might seem slow, but when compared to a traditional 3x3x3 cube there’s far more combinations and moves needed.

The whole kit was built by David Gilday who managed to port the cube solving robot software on to an Android device.
