No, this isn’t a high-tech flying device.
It is, though, a pretty cool survival pod created by Japanese company Cosmo Power. They say it can hold up to four adults and withstand earthquaktes, tsunamis and even hurricanes.
Company president Shoji Tanaka went a step further, telling the Associated Press that “This is the only shelter that guarantees protection from any natural disaster.” Clearly the company has a lot of confidence in this new pod.
As ABC News details, the company reported a huge increase in potential buyers of the pods, which cost approximately $4000 each, since the devastation that hit Japan in March.
Below, watch a short news piece about the pod.
