As if there was not enough evidence out that the machines are taking over, one robot has broken the Guinness World Record for fastest solving of a Rubiks Cube.

The infamous Rubiks Cube, known for its many colors and mind-stretching complexity, was solved in 0.887 seconds by a machine called Sub1.

In a video posted to YouTube by Guinness World Records, Sub1 is shown solving the cube, amazing enough in a slow-motion feed that's still super fast.

Sub1 was created by Albert Beer of Germany and his robot's record time is far faster than the fastest time for a human to solve the cube, that being 4.904 seconds by teenager Lucas Etter.

Uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday, the video showing Sub1's amazing feat has gotten 215,000+ views and 3,000+ likes.
