The Most Badass Tumbleweed I've Ever Seen

Massoud Hassani was smuggled out of Afghanistan when he was 14-years-old. Watch his story about returning to Kabul and putting his product design skills to work to build a tool for cheaply surveying and raising awareness about the hundreds of thousands of land mines still hidden in Afghanistan.

This is an incredible design. I wonder how many hundreds of these could be produced rather than more bombs or land mines.

Good question Kit--and could they work in Vietnam and other places with mines to remove, too? Or is the terrain a barrier? You cannot currently send a star to Kit because you have done so within the last week.

wow! Princess Diana must be watching this where ever form she now is in. She was a big supporter of ending land mining, as are many others. I think US never has signed an aggreement to stop using them.

I do hate videos. Nice idea but there would need to be a way to cover every inch or so that invention cannot do that as seen.

An observation well worth considering Scott for enhancements if needed upon experience.
