A Complete Guide About Japanese Tsunami Evacuation Pod

The Noah capsule, a Japanese tsunami evacuation pod, is made of fiberglass that can float on water and accommodate four individuals for a cost of approximately $4,000 (£2,570).

A Japanese business has begun promoting a floating pod, which the company claims can provide life-saving shelter against natural disasters such as tsunamis and storms, among other things. Japan's first tsunami survival shelter, a capsule that can float on water and is a 4 person survival capsule, was created by a small manufacturer in the country's northeastern region.

A little factory in Japan is peddling a product that no one wants to think about having to use. In reality, this small escape pod is a tsunami survival bunker that may float in the event that another calamity strikes the island nation, such as the one that was tsunami in Japan followed by a nuclear reactor blast that has occurred earlier a few years back. It's named Noah, after the biblical Noah's Ark, but this one is only big enough to accommodate four adults at a time.

According to the company's president, it is the only device of its kind that is guaranteed to defend against tsunamis, typhoons, and earthquakes. Following the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan's northeast coast, about 21,000 people perished or went missing across the country. According to company representatives, they have received a deluge of phone calls inquiring about the item.

It costs slightly less than four thousand dollars and is constructed of reinforced fibreglass. When the water recedes, it has a pole inside for people to hold on to, and the bright colour is designed to make it easy to identify.

How Do Tsunami Capsules Work?

The capsules are made out of a tubular aluminium frame that is soldered to two aluminium hemispheres that cover the outside of the capsules. Its high-strength Lexan glass pane and its silver inside lining are the same materials that are used on space shuttles to prevent them from overheating during re-entry into Earth's atmosphere.

A tsunami escape pod may appear to be a frivolous invention of a tech mogul or a Bond supervillain, but it is everything but. However, it was Julian Sharpe, a former aerospace engineer who came up with the idea while on a family vacation at the beach, who is credited with coming up with the concept.

"I was lying there at nighttime listening to the waves, and I was thinking, 'What happens if a tsunami comes in now?'" he says.

"It's nighttime, none of the tsunami signs would be illuminated. The kids were younger in those days, so you probably had to carry them. So I had all this going through my mind, and I started thinking about making something to jump into, which would be the simplest solution."

Sharpe drew inspiration from his years working in the aerospace business when he sat down to sketch some rough designs for what would become the Survival Capsule. In essence, the Capsule is a big, reinforced ball that is designed to shield passengers from the high forces of waves as well as the debris that can be thrown up by the waves. If you're expecting the James Bond-style escape pod from The Spy Who Loved Me, you'll be disappointed. Instead, expect something more utilitarian and no-nonsense, with an exposed, tubular aluminium frame on the inside and barely enough room for the essentials for survival.

The space capsule is insulated with the same silver ceramic insulation that was used to shield the Space Shuttle when it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere in 2003 and 2004. Only 4 people can sit side by side comfortably (though you'd want to be quite comfortable with sharing personal space). The Survival Capsule has been engineered to withstand the worst-case scenario, from its metal frame to its fiberglass coverage.

In order to survive everything that a natural disaster can bring, the bright-colored Japanese tsunami evacuation pod has been strengthened on the outside. As stated on the Survival Capsule website, this includes "sharp object penetration, heat exposure, blunt object impact, and rapid deceleration" — in other words, if you're thrown into the ocean and come crashing back to shore, the Capsule has you covered.

When you look back at the grainy video footage from the catastrophic tsunami that hit Sumatra in 2004 or the heartbreaking footage from the 2011 Japanese tsunami that resulted in the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the idea of sheltering in place and attempting to ride out a tsunami appears to be complete and utter nonsense.

People are really enjoying or even you can call it fantasizing this pod. But some have more concerns about using this pod. Check out some of the comments provided below.

"Wouldn't it be nice if it had a button you could press and get a nice fresh blueberry muffin?"

"Either that or on a roller coaster ride for hours lol. Hopefully you just get jammed up somewhere and stuck for a while"

_IWillKarateKickYou

"Reminds me of that Alien movie where Rebecca Ferguson gets stuck in a spinning capsule in space until she dies. That scene was more horrific than all the gore and scare scenes to me. The concept of just spinning endlessly in space until you'd eventually die at some point."

_imooforyou

"Many people actually have that same dream! A massive wall of water coming towards you is one I always have. Sorta similar to how many people have dreams about showing up to work naked or missing every day of a class and having an exam."

Conclusion

As a result, escape is often impossible because tsunamis arrive with little warning, the waves are swift, and the waves are extremely damaging. The easiest strategy to survive a tsunami is to get into a Japanese tsunami evacuation pod as soon as it is possible.
