This Earthquake-Proof Bed Transforms Into a Metal Tomb to Keep You Safe

By: | December 21st, 2015

So now we have an earthquake-proof bed prototype?

I’m not sure how practical the idea is, because watching the video, it appears as though the bed simply swallows you whole to protect you from everything shattering and shaking around you.

One earthquake-proof bed turns into a metal tomb to protect you while another drops you to safety like some type of life-saving magic trick.

There is some dispute over who actually created the earthquake-proof bed prototype, but many are leaning towards Chinese inventor Wang Wenxi, who reportedly patented the idea for an earthquake-proof bed back in 2010.

If you’re in a hot earthquake zone, it might be a good idea to outfit your house with these beds, but who knows if they will ever come to fruition.
