Mine Kafon - land mine detonator by Massoud Hassani

The main motivation is just to raise a little awareness of his project, which is to design a device to passively detonate hidden land mines and record their locations, so if you're interested go check out his campaign here:
The model doesn't look exactly like his design and probably only has around half the number of feet (32 total). I think it turned out to be a fun little toy to play with and a pleasure to look at, hope you enjoy it too.

For what it's worth, modern lands mines are undetectable with metal detectors which makes them especially lethal. The best way to eradicate a mine field is to detonate them all.
Your totally right, he should have tried to minimized the actual contact area to the ground to try and prevent detonation and use some sort of metal detection devise to send back a map of all potential mine location they could then be detonated.
I think so too. To me it seems the notion of a passive wind powered device would go better with a detector (instead of a detonator) and location recorder, since setting the mines off reliably requires some heft (from the little I've learned about it). One way or another I think the design has some very interesting aspects and I hope he is able to continue its development.
Some little spring-loaded mines would be super sweet! Maybe some little flaps to fit over the legs for a wind powered version?

There are 2 options for the foot sizes - 30mm and 24mm. The 30mm's look a little better I think and the 24mm's roll better.
Both the 'FootPlate" STL's are for 100mm square build areas.
