A Netherlands-based Kickstarter campaign wants to use drones to get rid of landmines in the next decade.
The Mine Kafon Drone is an aerial vehicle that can map landmine-rich environments, do effective sweeping searches with metal detectors, and plant detonators before escaping to a safe distance—all without a single living foot touching the ground.
It’s a drone that could potentially save thousands of lives, with the body and chassis of something reminiscent of an Imperial Probe Droid.
Or one of those squid-like things from The Matrix.
Still, the world would be a better place with a few hundred of these running around.
