Get Ready For The Next Disaster By Hiding Inside A Floating Ball

With so many hurricanes and earthquakes and tsunamis and 2012 only being a year away, I wouldn't blame you for preparing for the end of the world. So feel free to buy the Noah Disaster Shelter, a gigantic yellow pod that can house four people.

It costs a pretty penny at $US3900 but think about how safe you'll feel (and the money you'll make) when three of your closest friends (or family members) come a knockin'. It's an investment people! The Noah Disaster Shelter, created by New CosmoPower, protects up to four people. There's a pole to hold on to and room for pillows to make it a wee bit more comfortable too. No one ever said a tsunami is luxurious.

The pod is resistant to impact and water so you can float around your destroyed city until stuff calms down. Think of it as a modern day version of Noah's ark, except you can't re-create civilisation with it. I guess saving yourself is enough! [Asahi via DVICE]
