A retired Chinese inventor has come up with a way to protect youself from the threat of earthquakes for at least a third of your life as that’s how long you’ll spend sleeping in bed. Bonus, the more you get down with your old lady in bed, the more often you’ll be protected from earthquakes. Safety first.
The idea for this earthquake-proof bed is not just safe, though, it’s stylish and functional. You might not know it from looking at the picture but the three wooden sides to this bed function not only as a frame, but as storage cupboards that can be filled with earthquake preparedness kits as well as automatically combining to form a “strongbox” which protects its sleeper from debris in the event of a quake. Depending on the supplies they’d packed, a person could survive for several days in such a box.
The bed isn’t commercially available yet, but seems like a good idea for anybody living in China (where 70,000 people died in the 2008 8.0 magnitude quake). Of course, you should also follow the below precautions when trying to survive an earthquake. Via Daily Chilli
