To Solve Earthquake Woes, Japanese Company Creates Levitating Homes

/>Japanese company Air Danshin Systems Inc. is implementing a system across sites in Japan, that uses air pressure to levitate homes during an earthquake.

/>

/>The earthquake-proofing system, according to Spoon & Tamago, requires little maintenance and is relatively low in cost compared to other systems.

/>

/>When rumblings of earthquakes are detected through the system’s sensor, air would be pushed into its air tank within 0.5 to 1 second, and homes would be lifted as high as 3cm off the ground from an artificial foundation.

/>

/>The levitated home would not be as highly affected and vibrated as much as the ground, and once the earthquake is over, it returns back to the ground.
