A Chinese man, under the supervision of world renowned tsunami specialist Dr. Eddie Bernard, has invented the safest and most advanced tsunami shelter ever.

The shelter is shaped like a giant ball, and it's fittingly called the Survival Capsule. The sturdy exterior is made out of the same aluminum used in making airplanes, and on top of that, the capsule is protected by another 3.6mm layer of special aluminum for extra protection. Coming in different sizes, the capsule fits anywhere from one person to ten. The seats are equipped with seat belts for when the current gets violent. To prevent it from being taken too far away by the wave, a tether can be lowered to keep you anchored. As long as you are in an area that gets reception, you can even use your cellphone. In preparation for the worst case scenario in which you have to stay in the capsule for days, the capsule comes equipped with a survival kit, complete with an oxygen tank and even water.

For now, the Survival Capsule costs anywhere from 1.2 to 1.5 million yen, or about 12,000 to 15,000 dollars, depending on the specific model. If there's enough demand, the Japanese company that sells it, Toho Mercantile, claims they will lower the price.
