The recent earthquake in Indonesia served as a wake-up call to everyone that any natural disaster can happen at any unexpected time. That is why it is important for everyone to be ready in order to survive these types of disaster.
Some earthquakes occur during night time so some victims of earthquake were not able to move and take action to be in a safe area. With this problem, an inventor designed a bed that can make everyone safe when an earthquake strikes.
A video posted by Viral Trnd shows an animation of the anti-earthquake bed that suddenly shelters a sleeping person when the tremors hit.
The anti-earthquake bed has a secret compartment inside the bed that turns into a coffin-like one. The secret compartment has all the things a person need in an earthquake disaster – water, canned food, megaphone, batteries, and a fire extinguisher.
According to its inventor Mr. Wenxi, the idea of an anti-earthquake bed came to him as he experienced a lot of earthquakes at his age of 66.
“I experienced the Xingtai and Tangshan earthquakes giving me more understanding of such natural disasters,” he told China Daily.
He added: The Wenchuan and Yushu earthquakes caused heavy casualties, so I thought the most serious thing I could do was to invent something to reduce the toll in lives I think my life-saving bed is useful, especially suitable for brick-and-concrete low-rise buildings and bungalows as well as the families with the old, the weak, the sick and the disabled.
Mark Benthien, an expert from Southern California Earthquake Center, told CNN that the idea is a good one but it has problems beyond its design.
“Clearly if you’re able to be in a steel enclosure, with supplies, that’s not a bad thing. It looks very expensive,” he said.
The idea has yet to be created as it needs to have more tests like how strong this anti-earthquake bed is and how it can really make a person safe inside. At the same time, there is still no estimated price for the anti-earthquake bed.
Netizens were also wondering if the design would really deliver.
“You ever had that sensation of falling right before you’re about to fall asleep, and it shocks you awake? It’s awful. Now that feeling can be REAL. But wait, there’s more! You’ll also be locked in a steel box while you’re being tossed about in an earthquake and a whole building is literally falling on top of you. You’ll wet the bed for the first time since you were five, just from sheer terror at the sudden turn of events,” Zenith Baker said.
“Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird to sink in ur bed all of sudden during sleep? This would freak me out more than earthquake,” Chen Ling said.
