Earthquake Ark / Earthquake Ark

Earthquake Ark

When a great earthquake breaks out, people inside are often threatened by the falling heavy objects for being not able to find a proper shield. This table is a good solution to this problem. When an earthquake comes, people can hide under this table which can be split to form a stable tripod after the red safety ring is quickly pulled up, so that the falling stones can fall slide down from both sides and people are effectively protected. Inside the table, there is first-aid kit, flashlight, water and food and people can stay inside waiting for rescue.
