Earthquake proof bed latest invention to come out of China, may save lives - TomoNews

HEBEI PROVINCE, CHINA - The 2008 Sichuan earthquake in China left more than 90,000 people either dead or missing, so of course it sparked a need to design more earthquake-proof buildings and sometimes furniture. One such design comes from Wang Wenxi, a man who received a patent for his earthquake-proof bed design in 2010. He’s been updating his designs and offers more than one type of bed for those wary of being caught sleeping and unaware during an earthquake. The bed resembles a cross between a panic room and a coffin. Some of the designs drop the sleeper directly inside the bed which closes up like a box, there is space for owners to store food, water, and other supplies. Unfortunately, Wang’s video and company don’t offer any explanation for how rescue crews are supposed to locate the beds in collapsed buildings and don’t show how the person inside is supposed to be able to get out. Other risks could also include caught or broken limbs if the person doesn’t sleep within the outlined parameters of the bed. There’s also the question of what happens if a person is caught outside of the bed, say during the day time or perhaps just getting up to visit the toilet. It seems like a good idea at first glance, but clearly there are still a lot of details to be worked out. The price tag on these things probably isn’t cheap either, so for those who can’t afford earthquake-proof beds it looks we’ll just have to stick to traditional methods such as hiding in a bathtub, under tables, or shielding your head with something soft like a pillow and then running for the door as soon as possible. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Jia Yi Lim (2 years ago)
dude not everything made in China is bad...are u that ignorant. 50 or 40 years ago, Japanese things were considered cheap and bad too because they produced them at the cheapest level.

Jia Yi Lim (2 years ago)
Man you guys are immature...did you know that Japan was like this back in the 60s and 70s too? everyone thought that made in Japan meant bad quality...plus not everything made in China is bad...it just depends on how much you're willing to pay.

It's going to made in China, so might as well call this a coffin.
Naughtysauce (2 years ago)
Everyone starts out as shit, then improves. That's why when a product say's made in Japan or Korea, it's a prestigious brand now when not even 10 years ago Kia & Hyundai's were considered shit cars. China on the other hand does the opposite, it specializes in quick turnaround for a buck, throw the quality out the window. 
Jia Yi Lim (2 years ago)
why are u guys so negative towards China? not everything is bad...I really love Japanese things but if you're ignorant, you probably didn't know that 50 or 40 years ago, Japanese things were the same as how we consider Chinese things, because they were mass produced at cheap levels. unless u want something better, you'll have to pay more
