A 14-year-old boy in India has reached a US $730,000 deal with the Indian government to fund his breakthrough invention of an anti-personnel landmine drone, which is capable of assisting with detecting and diffusing mines in the field. The device will be an improvement on any de-mining tools currently used by the Indian army.

Mines Advisory Group (MAG) has recently warned that we are witnessing a new landmine emergency on a scale that has not been seen since the historic treaty to ban landmines formed 20 years ago. The group has warned the viciousness of the devices being planted across Syria and Iraq is unimaginable. They are sensitive enough to be triggered by a child’s footstep but powerful enough to disable a tank.
