Afghan toy inspires wind-propelled landmine destroyer

Help

An inventor studying at the Design Academy in Eindhoven has made a prototype wind-propelled landmine destroyer which is able to map its own path and 'clear' it as safe to use.

The Mine Kafon device is based on a toy Massoud Hassani played with as a child when he was growing up in Afghanistan.
