Micromouse competitions are an attribute to the growing popularity of robotic entertainment. This particular competition in Chubu, Japan appears to be going normally until you hit the 4:30 mark, at which point the EggTorte bot solves the maze in less than five seconds. Its owner probably threatened it with a robotic mousetrap.
According to Wikipedia, the world-record for solving a 16×16 maze is around 6 or 7 seconds. If this counts, EggTorte might have a record on its hands. Though without a Guinness official on site, they probably couldn’t distinguish whether EggTorte was programmed specifically for this maze or not.[via]
