This is a fun, basic storage box DIY project to stash some secret goodies, or to set on the coffee table for a solid conversation starter. The construction is surprisingly simple, with no fancy cuts involved, just accurate cuts and square corners.
When you work from home, you look forward to little things that help break the day up: the mailman coming, the tornado siren test on Wednesdays at noon, the kids skipping along the sidewalk walking home when school lets out, and, most importantly, snack time. Often, it's just a handful of nuts, a bit of leftovers, but usually, a simple piece of fruit.
Which, after I saw this video last week, I've been turning into puzzles. Every day.
*Well, almost anyone, as the current record holder can solve one in under 20 seconds.
BUT, this Motorola Droid-power Lego robot can solve on in 25 seconds, which is less time than it takes me to remember how to SPELL Rubik's Cube (Hint: there's no C...)
"he Mindstorms robot was programmed using a Motorola Droid, which runs on an Arm A8 processor clocked at 550MHz, to show the speed of their chips. A specially-built app takes a photo of the cube's side facing the camera, with the commands being sent to the Mindstorms robot over Bluetooth."
