Aussie 19-year-old takes Intel prize for building drone

You never know where a winning idea can come from:

Looks like he might be a Sydney local, since it's reported he is enrolled at UNSW for an Engineering degree.


Just a warning - he apparently used an Arduino...

I can totally see that replacing windows cleaners.
Could maybe have been done with a crawler of some type too, has anyone ever done that?

EDIT: Yep, it has:

Sagan's gotten a lot bigger than I remember!   :-DD. Would be neat to see him there one day, but I'll stop talking about things that aren't really my business, I'm just here for that joke.

I've got 3 years, time to beat him.  :-DD
