It was a video that sparked Harshwardhansinh Zala’s life-saving idea.
The young Indian inventor saw a YouTube video where soldiers were trying to defuse a mine. The mine exploded suddenly, injuring several of them.
Harshwardhansinh thought there had to be a way of locating and dealing with mines that didn’t put people in danger. His solution? A drone that could snoop for mines without setting them off, then drop a marker to allow mine clearers to detonate them safely.
