Entrepreneur Filip Sobotka says the solution to Toronto's falling glass problems could be a robot named SAM. The setupinvolves an SLR camera attached to a motorized platform that travels up and down two metal cables. Rigging on the roof and the ground keep SAM steady, allowing it to take photos of the exterior of a building, according to a July 12 CBCNews report.The robot is controlled via a WiFi connection to an iPad, and the photos taken can show engineers everything from window seals, to poor caulking, to cracks in cement or brick, inventors report in the article.
