When a natural disaster, like a hurricane or tsunami, comes, your best bet is to get out of the way.  Unfortunately, you may not always get enough warning to escape to a safe distance before the disaster strikes.

This difficult reality led aerospace designers Julian Sharpe and Scott Hill to invent the Survival Capsule.  Reminiscent of the reentry capsules from the early days of NASA, the Survival Capsule is watertight, fireproof, can withstand debris moving at up to 75 mph, and can store up to five days of food and water. While evacuating is best, it's important to have a back-up plan in case you can't get out.

The Survival Capsules are designed as a last-resort measure, to be placed in schools, public buildings and private dwellings where occupants may be at most risk of not being able to escape a natural disaster. The watertight capsules can float free or be tethered to a location via a cable, which is designed to release if the capsule is in danger of being trapped underwater.

The capsules also have a one-hour oxygen supply that can get occupants through periods of total submersion, and they have storage space for water and supplies for up to five days, so occupants can survive in a disaster zone until help arrives.
