Japanese Man Invents Tsunami Pod
After the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Shoji Tanaka decided to invent something to help people survive the next disaster.
The “Noah” pod is a small sphere that you can climb into when the world is crashing and splashing down around you.
If a tsunami washes you away, you can ride the wave high and dry, scrunched up into a little floating ball.
It’s bright yellow, so rescuers can more easily spot it.
Tanaka’s company already has orders for hundreds of the floatation devices.
Here’s a link to the video from Reuters.
