Imagine a world where augmented reality (AR) can enhance your day-to-day life, guiding you through city streets, providing relevant info right when it’s needed, and generally helping you make the best choices a strong data connection and a wearable HUD can provide. That day’s not here yet, but augmented reality can at least solve your Rubik’s Cube for you now.

Martin Španěl, a student from Charles University in Prague, calls his AR app Mistr Kostky, which roughly translates to “Master Dice.” After the the program “detects the permutation of the cube,” explains Španěl on his website, “it computes how to solve it in 20 turns or less and shows the first turn directly on the cube.”

The software is still in early stages—it can’t adapt to mistakes, and if a solver makes a move it doesn’t suggest the system has to start over. Španěl calls the system a “work in progress” and hopes to have it running on Android systems soon. No word if Mistr Kostky will also help you smuggle out NSA secrets inside in your Cube.
