While it's hard to believe that a landmine detector could be necessary due to the part of the world we live in, it does have its uses. One of the places it could see real use is in Columbia.

Years mired by Guerilla tactics have left the country in a scary state. According to co.exist, "Mines have maimed more than 10,000 people since 1990; only Afghanistan has had more such victims." With an invention like the landmine detector from Lemur Studio, we could go a long way in protecting civilians from the horrors of walking through a mine-filled area.

The product is called SaveOneLife and works by sending out an electromagnetic pulse, which picks up another electromagnetic pulse from pieces of metal nearby. It's all very complex but the overarching point is that this can go a long way in clearing out the impending danger in war-torn areas.
