1. Mine-detecting tumbleweed.
Afghan artist Massoud Hassani invented a simple machine for his war-torn homeland.
Mine Kafon is a low-cost landmine detonator powered by the wind. Like a man-made tumbleweed, the device rolls across flat terrain to activate buried mines, relaying their locations back to a home base. It’s thoughtful design with the power to make the world a better place.
Our Project of the Day, Mine Kafon seeks funds to rebuild the prototype and deploy in Afghanistan.
