This Earthquake-Proof Bed Transforms Itself Into A Bunker In Seconds

If you live in an area with heavy tectonic activity, you know what actions to take in the event of an earthquake. But what happens if a devastating earthquake occurs while you're in bed, and you happen to sleep like a rock?

Russian tech company Dahir Insaat may have the answer in the form of steel-framed beds that turn into bunkers when seismic quakes occur. Watch this video of the beds in action. They're basically Transformers! It's awesome.


You'll notice that when the bed drops in, the inner sanctum is filled with several months' worth of supplies, just in case your building collapses and rescuers have no way of reaching you. Dahir Insaat just needs to make the beds Netflix capable in case we want to binge-watch our favorite shows while we're trapped.
