This video, about the “mine kafon” is simply fantastic. I really love hearing about ingenious ideas, especially ones which are used for really important purposes like clearing out leftover land mines.

The mine kafon, as you see in the video, was inspired by a childhood activity of creating wind-powered racing “vehicles.” Taking this childhood game and turning it into an adulthood utility is not only inspiring, but helpful for viewers to start an inner dialogue about what sort of ideas they have hidden away in the depths of their mind.

Ideas can come from anywhere, and learning about how inspiration spurs science is endlessly fascinating to me, and a worthwhile subject of study.

Watch this short video and ask yourself, “What ideas are sitting dormant inside my mind?”
