Apocalypse Pods To Beat The End Of The World
As people across the globe tremble in anticipation of next week’s supposed Mayan-predicted apocalypse, one Chinese villager says he has just what humanity needs – tsunami-proof survival pods.
Former farmer and furniture maker Liu Qiyuan, 45, calls the spheres Noah’s Arks, designed to withstand towering tsunamis and devastating earthquakes.
The pods use a glass fibre casing over a steel frame. They cost 300,000 yuan (£30,000) each, and are equipped with oxygen tanks, food and water supplies.
