Massoud Hassani creates a solution to land mines

There are over 110 million anti-personnel land mines scattered across 70 countries. Many of these mines have been underground for +30 years, and still remain active.Massoud Hassani has developed a cheap, effective method to combat this devastating problem. His ‘Mine Kafon’ is a cheap, light, wind-powered mine detonating device.It’s composed almost entirely from bamboo and biodegradable plastics. At 70 kilograms, his invention is light enough to be propelled by a normal breeze, while still being heavy and big enough to act.
