Earthquake Proof Table Will Save Your Life [protection]

If there is a quake where you live then you gottta find a safe place to hide. Hint: it’s not under your desk. The debris from the house would crush you dead.

Soon enough we’ll be having in our houses the earthquake proof table made by Arthur Brutter and Ido Bruno from Jerusalem’s Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. They have worked for about two and a half years to complete this table and it can withstand impact of 1 Ton (2200 pounds) blocks.

Now that is something I’d like to have in my house. This earthquake proof table will cost about 2.5 times a normal desk, but it will last more than twice. The table is currently licensed by school furniture manufacturer A.D. Meraz Industries Ltd. for distribution in Israel. We do not know yet when it will be released for international sales, but I hope it will be pretty soon. More detail;s on this from Wired. Via [Vsauce].
