Description

This presentation is an introduction to some of the computation and image processing capabilities of Mathematica. I show how one can take a couple of pictures of a Rubik's cube and have Mathematica generate a high resolution animation showing a minimal set of moves to bring the cube back to its initial orientation. Image processing is used as a fast input method for capturing the cube's position. The solver is using the well known two phase solver. The movie is then made by using Export.
