I feel like I posted this or something very on Geekologie back in another lifetime, but that may have just been a fever dream. Hard to say. This is a video of the ‘earthquake bed’ imagined by Chinese inventor Wang Wenxi. In the event an earthquake is detected, the bed swallows its occupants whole, depositing them in a crushproof chamber below, with the water and supplies necessary for waiting out a rescue. Is it a good idea? That’s debatable. Especially depending whether there’s a way to open the bed yourself afterward, or if it is, in fact, just a coffin. Also, how do I know it’ll able to tell the difference between an earthquake and some particularly spirited lovemaking?
