Survival Capsule, a giant spherical ball with a concept of the personal safety system (PPS) is designed specifically to protect you against tornadoes, tsunamis, storm surges, hurricanes and earthquakes. It is developed by aircraft engineers from Survival Capsule LLC.

The company stated that using a PSS, as opposed to a municipal safety system like a safe house, lets individual groups and families to be safer during their survival in an emergency situation. It further explained that the capsule is also a flexible disaster solution, which means it can differ position according to water depth, so it will never be flooded by water levels rising too high. The capsule provides warmth, safety and shelter during the initial post-disaster period before rescue crews and relief workers have appeared on the scene.

The giant Survival Capsule can withstand the initial impact of a natural disaster, heat exposure, rapid deceleration, sharp object penetration and blunt object impact. It can be mounted inside or outside the house or business establishment. It comes in different sizes from two-person to a ten-person capacity. The smaller capsules are appropriate for family and private dwellings. On the other hand, the larger capsules are fitted for business, schools, hospital, municipal buildings and general public safe havens.

The capsule is designed to float with a self-righting system that can prevent it from rolling upside down, according to Daily Mail. It is made from a hardened aluminum shell and frame and its interior is also insulated.

The Survival Capsule's Standard features are the following:

  • Storage Space (sufficient for five day's supply per person)
