“Turn-safety” is a special bed that can save lives in earthquake-prone regions of the world. If the bed frame detects a certain vibration intensity, two side pieces shoot up to create a stable hollow space. Should the person be buried under the rubble, this hollow space provides protection until the rescue team can get there.
