Land Mine Clearance Technology Rolls Along


Here’s a link to my latest podcast, “Land Mine Clearance Technology Rolls Along.”


In this thirteen-minute podcast, I share my experiences as I sought information about the “Mine Kafon,” a wind-powered device for potential use in clearing hidden, unexploded land mines.  The Mine Kafon, created by Massoud Hassani, recently won a London Design Museum Award nomination.  Final winners will be announced in April 2012.  Hassani was born in Afghanistan, which currently has over ten million hidden, unexploded land mines.

For more information about the Mine Kafon, visit Hassani’s blog site, http://minekafon.blogspot.com .  For additional information about other land mine clearance technologies in recent years, go to the links posted on http://www.mindsclearinglandmines.org .
