Jigzilla Puzzle Solving Machine StuffMadeHere
Inventor and engineer Shane Wighton of StuffMadeHere reveals his latest project: Jigzilla. This machine is capable of solving the toughest of puzzles, even one consisting of 5,000 pieces. It basically consists of a giant table with a robot designed to move puzzle pieces around, complete with a vacuum system that can rotate them as needed.



Pieces are picked up using a small suction cup via a compressed air vacuum with belts powered by small motors on each side of the table moving them to the correct places. A small camera on the robot helps it identify pieces and where best to use its suction cup that is furthest from all edges. However, a telecentric lens was needed to help the robot view the pieces as if they were infinitely far away to compensate for the distortion. Speaking of puzzles, there’s already a 3D-printed robot designed to solve Wordle puzzles.
