Life is for living but there are times when risks need to be managed. In this article we take a look at how design engineering for disasters can provide the necessary security blanket which, ultimately, saves lives.
If disaster strikes in the form of an earthquake, for example, when you are at your most vulnerable, it is reassuring to see such solutions as this earthquake-proof bed.
When seismic activity is registered, the bed transforms to become a life-saving chamber. Some may find the concept of being jarred awake and dropped into the chamber a little disturbing but surely it is better than the alternative.
