This looks like any other bed—but when the ground starts shaking it ‘swallows’ you

The terrifying yet brilliant earthquake-proof bed featured in this animated video may be able to save your life in the event of a quake. Check out how it works in the clip.

The anti-earthquake bed apparently is able to sense whenever an earthquake strikes.

If the ground starts shaking when you’re asleep, the bed’s mechanism instantly drops the mattress, “swallowing” you into a sealed metal chamber packed with emergency supplies.

It sounds terrific, but one question comes to mind—how does one get out of the chamber?

Although a video of the prototype in action was posted in 2012, the product cannot be found on the company’s website.

What is your opinion on this somewhat scary life-saving design concept?
