Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani
Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.
Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.
Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.
In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”

There are 680,000 people in the U.S. government’s terrorist screening database. But it turns out you don’t exactly need to be an actual terrorist to make the cut.
A copy of the watch list leaked to the Intercept revealed that 280,000 people — more than 40% of the database — have “no recognized terrorist group affiliation.”
