Japanese Invent Miniature Version of Noah's Ark

Quote:
It might look like a giant tennis ball, but in the land of the rising sun this quirky contraption is being marketed as the answer to surviving an earthquake and tsunami.
Dubbed Noah - after the ark which survived biblical floods - these floating spherical capsules are claimed to protect people from drowning and debris, should another disaster hit Japan.
The modern, miniature version of Noah's Ark has been developed by a small Japanese company, in case the country is hit by another massive earthquake and tsunami.

Tight squeeze: Shoji Tanaka, President of Cosmo Power, crawls out of the 'Noah' earthquake and tsunami shelter at the company's factory in Hiratsuka, west of Tokyo:


In the round: The shelter, made from fiber-enforced plastic, is 1.2 metres - four feet - in diameter and can hold up to four adults inside:


The floating capsule is made from enhance fiberglass and is designed to withstand giant waves and flooding.
Cosmo Power, a company based just west of Tokyo, says its 'Noah' shelter can save users from disasters like the one on March 11 that devastated Japan's northern coast, leaving nearly 20,000 people dead or missing.
Company president Shoji Tanaka says the 300,000-yen - or £2,525 - capsule can hold four adults, and that it has survived many crash tests.
It has a small lookout window and breathing holes on top. It also can be used as a toy house for children. The company already has delivered two capsules and has orders for 600 more.

They need to study the barrels used to go over Niagara Falls.

Fuck that. I'd rather be washed under the current than be trapped in a tiny ass ball. Wait till that shit starts rolling and you rack yourself 47 times on the tiny ass pole.
