 Hello dear friends! 

We are wishing you the best new year ever!!! 2014!!

Regarding the Mine Kafon project. In the past few months, we have been finalising the new Mine Kafon's. The picture above is one of the examples that we are working at the moment. Also there will be an all terrain robotic device that can detect land-mines, currently we are applying for some patents on that. 

Our next deadline is in four months. We hope to be able to do the new test sessions and meet the UN regulations. 

Thank you all for your support ;-)

best wishes

Massoud & Mahmud

      The new design is interesting - is there a limit to how many across they can be before the wind cannot push them?

      Also - The original design seems like it would be better able to handle shifts in the wind...

      Thanks be to God for your progress.

      As someone who has also shepherded projects forward (none this important, though) I have a great deal of sympathy for the fits and starts of moving forward. It is important to spread the word, and also frustrating to have to spend so much time doing so.

      I trust that the UN will work with you and expedite this project, so it can save lives and limbs for years to come.

      May the Lord continue to bless and keep you and all who are working on this wonderful project.

      Seems to me he just did give us the status of the actual project.
      Pictured, you see the improved design for the device.
      Next - There is also a robotic device for mine detection - cool.
      Lastly - the a deadline in 4 months that the are working on to meet the UN regulations (what they are I do not know but I bet if you ask that nicely, you can get information. I'm sure it's all technical and crap that I'd likely not understand but you might so ask that question).
      This is an international project - not just a little start up for some small company that wants to sell it's game or product. I'll wager the flying around for conferences is rather important to the project. I mean how many KS projects have to meet UN regulations?? I think that you as a back have a right to ask questions about how your money is being spent and more details but why not pose specific questions you may have?

      The new designs shown above look like a really big step in addressing diverse areas where the Mine Kafon can detonate mines. I hope the UN regulations don't take a tremendous amount of time to satisfy. Have a safe and happy new year.

      Yes, happy new year. But i agree with Sebastian. Spreading the wird is very nice, but is there any chance we will ever see the actual project in action? iPhone cases and lampshades are great, but this is about a mine detonating device. What is the status on the actual project?
      Please tell us.
      Thanks.

      All the best that the new year can offer you!! Your work is very important, I don't mind at all if you change the original plan; you're doing a great job of keeping us informed. :v)

      Hi, I'd be rather happy if you stop traveling from one press conference to another and stick a bit more to the plan.

      You said in March 2013 you wanted to launch the website where we can follow the mine Kafon's online. Well, I don't have any problem with you spreading the word, but it feels to me you went way beyond your original target :-(
