A German engineer is in the record books after designing a robot that solved a Rubik's cube in 0.887 seconds. 

Officials from Guinness World Records confirmed Albert Beer's robot, Sub 1, now holds the record for fastest robot to solve a Rubik's cube. 

By comparison, the Guinness World Record for deciphering the cube by a person is 4.904 seconds set by a Kentucky teenager in November 2015. 

According to GWR, Beer's robot is the third to break the record since October 2015, upending the previous record of 0.9 seconds by a robot built by two software developers from Kansas City set just a few weeks ago.
