Loopse by Ruff Robot FREE

   iPhone Screenshot 2

Loopse is a point scoring puzzle app game from Ruff Robot. The object is to form closed loops and score points.

Pieces are given 1 at a time. They are either 1×1 or 1×2 in size.  Sometimes you can use a piece to eliminate a row or column.  The game ends when there are no more empty squares in the grid.

I’ve played this game just once.  There’s a bit of a gambling element: try for a bigger loop to get extra points, but risk losing.

Fastest Robot Solving Rubik’s Cube

About 18 months ago I attended the Rubik’s Cube exhibit at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey.  It had a video showing the history of robots that could solve Rubik’s Cube.  I believe the fastest machine did it in 6 seconds. Or maybe it was 3 seconds.

Well, there’s a new robot in town that is blazing fast.

I’ve lost track of how many robots have broken the record for speed cubing. This record is going to stand for a while.
