The intelligence behind the customized Lego robot, the Cubestormer 3, is the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone. It is powered by an Exynos 5 octa-core processor, which is made up of four ARM Cortex-A15, and four Cortex-A7 CPU cores, in an ARM big.LITTLE architecture.

According to the two researchers, the robot showcases how Galaxy S4 device is able to run a customized Android application to analyze the cube, and control the moving parts of the robot to solve the puzzle. The complexity of such a task highlights the capabilities of the Cubestormer 3 in mimicking the “judgment and dexterity” of a human being, tasked with the same puzzle. The research team behind Cubestormer 3, consists of  David Gilday, who is a principle engineer at ARM, and Mike Dobson, a security systems engineer for Securi-Plex.
