The Mine Kafon Clears Hidden Dangers

Created by Afghan designer Massoud Hassani, the Mine Kafon is a wind-powered sphere that tumbles around the desert clearing extremely dangerous explosives by setting them off.

This may seem incredibly intense, but we have to consider the kind of world we live in where these kinds of inventions are necessary. The giant mine-seeking ball looks like something that has landed on earth from outer space with long tentacles and suction cup circles covering its entire body. Built at quite a large size, this sphere is actually taller than some adults. The tentacle-like arms sticking out of a central core are built to absorb the shock from exploding mines so that the Mine Kafon can continue on its task of mine hunting.
