Mini-Noah's Ark Created for Japan's Next Disaster

Ad Feedback

A small company in Japan is preparing for any future tsunamis in a somewhat biblical way by developing a miniature version of Noah's Ark.

Cosmo Power has named the emergency vessel "Noah," a floating capsule that looks like a huge tennis ball.

The capsule is able to hold four adults in case of an emergency.

Noah is made of enhanced fiberglass that the company says 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.

Company president Shoji Tanaka said the capsule has survived numerous crash tests.

It has a small lookout window and breathing holes on top. It also can be used as a toy house for children.

The company already has 600 orders, including two delivered.
