With concerns mounting about the possibilities of a major catastrophic event hitting the East Coast of America from a Mega-Tsunami coming from one of the Canary Islands, off the coast of North Africa; and with memories still alive from the Mega-Disasters that occurred in Japan on March 11th of this year; a company in Japan has created a tsunami capsule in-order to save lives from the extraordinary phenomenon of a gigantic tidal wave, generated by offshore earthquakes or undersea volcanic activity.

It might look like a giant tennis ball, but in the land of the rising sun this quirky contraption is being marketed as the answer to surviving an earthquake and tsunami. Dubbed Noah - after the ark which survived biblical floods - these floating spherical capsules are claimed to protect people from drowning and debris, should another disaster hit Japan. The modern, miniature version of Noah's Ark has been developed by a small Japanese company, in case the country is hit by another massive earthquake and tsunami. The floating capsule is made from enhance fiberglass and is designed to withstand giant waves and flooding. Cosmo Power, a company based just west of Tokyo, says its 'Noah' shelter can save users from disasters like the one on March 11 that devastated Japan's northern coast, leaving nearly 20,000 people dead or missing. - Daily Mail.WATCH: Tsunami Capsule.
