A German-engineered robot set a new record for solving the Rubik’s cube, completing the task in only .637 seconds.

The robot completed 21 turns in the time it usually takes a person to turn the cube just once, according to Digital Trends. The feat was accomplished late in 2016, but was officially recognized over the weekend as a new Guiness World Record.

Albert Beer built the Sub1 Reloaded robot, which surpassed the previous record of .887 seconds, also set by Beer.

The machine uses a special cube, one not prone to getting stuck or jammed like the regular versions, Digital Trends reported. The robot used a new chip with a processor from Infineon Technologies to complete the task.

The robot uses sensors to determine the positions of all the colors on the cube. It then creates an algorithm devised by Herbert Kociemba, according to Fox News, to solve the cube in the least possible number of moves. Finally, it executes the program and solves the cube.

The time it took the robot to solve the cube included the processes of sensing the colors and creating the algorithm as well as solving the cube.

The human record for solving the cube is 4.73 seconds and was set by Australian Feliks Zemdegs in December 2016.

Twitter users joked about the rise of robots, such as the record-breaking Rubik's cube solver.
