Clearing landmines via massive rolling tumbleweeds

Supposedly it was Plato who said “necessity is the mother of invention.” 

I think the invention below is a near perfect fit with that phrase. The inventor lost his father to a land mine in Afghanistan, was smuggled out of the country and designed the below from his base in The Netherlands.

Genius design; requires no power; decreases the cost to clear a single landmine from $1,200 to around 40 Euro; can be deployed by locals; can clear multiple mines; powered by the wind.
