Scientists are working on a robotic shoe that detects and avoids landmines. The shoe contains six legs that each have a metal detecting base. As the wearer places a foot down, all six of the legs test the ground to determine if a mine is present. If a mine is detected, the leg over the mine will raise, applying no pressure to ground and preventing the wearer from triggering the mine. Since landmines kill tens of thousands of people every year, these shoes are welcome inventions. With this technology, you'll also be able to effortlessly walk over the homeless people that used to remind you just how cruel and unforgiving the world really is. Plus you'll be like a foot taller!
