Kickstarter of the week

Introducing the Mine Kafon Drone! man, techonology like this can just be so inspiring!!

 

Check this out – the Mine Kafon Drone is an airborne demining system developed to clear all land mines around the world in less than 10 years.

 

What. Crazy. Shizz. Is that.

 

Mine Kafon Air

This device maps, detects and detonates land mines – which is a huge deal, not only because it’s 20 times faster and up to 200 times cheaper than current technologies, but because land mines are still such a huge problem.There are 100 million land mines in more than 60 countries worldwide. Every day, 10 innocent civilians are killed or maimed by these explosives.

 

using the aforementioned technologies currently available, the people behind the Mine Kafo Drone estimate it will take 1100 years to to clear all land mines. You read correctly – their drone will do it in an estimated 10 years.

 

That’s powerful.

 

The creators, Massoud and Mahmud Hassani, unsurprisingly, grew up in an area of Afghanistan where they saw the damage and horror of what landmines can do. They have now developed a fast and cost effective solution.

 

The project is now on Kickstarter, having raised $157,493 of their $$77,464 goal. They have 14 days left.
