Japanese engineering company Cosmo has invented what it’s referring to as a real-life miniature version of Noah’s Ark. It’s basically a floating capsule that looks like a gigantic ball.
But what it does is totally awesome—it can save your life during a devastating disaster like the earthquake/tsunami that hit Japan earlier this year. Four adults can fit inside and would be safe while the aforementioned disaster would be taking place around you. The device also has windows and breathing holes so could also serve as a children’s toy house during those non-disaster moments of life.
