"Engineering company Cosmo says its "Noah" shelter is made from enhanced fibreglass and could save users from disasters such as the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March that devastated Japan's northern coast and left nearly 20,000 people dead or missing.
The company's president, Shoji Tanaka, said the capsule could hold four adults and had survived many crash tests.
It has a lookout window and breathing holes, and could also be used as a toy house for children."
While it looks like it could protect many from earthquakes, a few remain skeptical about its usefulness during a water disaster. The air holes and lookout window seem dangerous because the potential of drowning is present for those inside.
Hopefully, there will be no need to put these to the test in a real life situation any time soon, but with 600 sold so far, it seems like users will check out the Ark’s potential on their own.
