Mine Kafon is a wind-powered, low-cost landmine destroying device designed by Afghan designer Massoud Hassani that can roll over the surface of a minefield like a tumbleweed to detonate hidden explosives. Equipped with 70 bamboo sticks and rubber legs, Hassani's device only costs $40 and can sustain up to four explosions, which is far more cost-efficient than the conventional method of mine-removing that can cost over $1,000 per pop.

Shut Up and Take My Money of the Day is a feature series dedicated to highlighting the latest innovations and visions in the world of consumer product design and gadgetry.
