The tremors will probably still wake you up in the middle of the night, but falling asleep in an earthquake prone part of the world would be a little easier with this reinforced bed that can support up to 65 tons of debris.
The Wood Luck bed, created by Shinko Industries in Japan, is designed as a more cost-effective means of making a home earthquake resistant. At least it's cost effective when compared to renovating the entire structure, since the cheapest version of the bed starts at a hefty £3,500. They're made from 30 to 40 year old cypress wood that's known for being incredibly strong, which probably contributes quite a bit to the price. But if you had to choose between resting your head on an Ikea bed or this during an earthquake, that price tag starts to seem a lot more reasonable. Although, it's probably most effective for those living on the first floor of a home, or in a basement apartment. [DigInfo TV]
