LEGO Mindstorn NXT solves Rubik's Cube

This is not new news but I still find it interesting. Some people might quibble that it is a waste of time to program a robot to solve a puzzle, but I disagree, Having participated as a FIRST coach the last two years I marvel at the ability of elementary school children to build and program robots to do different tasks. Granted, my kids aren't at the level to get their robot to solve a Rubik's Cube, but they are getting more and more comfortable building and programming.
