Earthquake-Proof Desk

When the big one hits, you have nothing to worry about because you're probably already napping under your desk. This the LifeGuard, a desk designed to serve as a shelter in the event of an earthquake.

It has steel walls and a floor to prevent punctures by debris. It has padding all around to ensure that even if the desk is thrown around, you may not receive a sharp blow to your body. The padded wedge on the left side provides comfort and is filled with survival gear. You can also lay down flat.

How effective is it? Although there's no indication that the LifeGuard has been in an earthquake, four desks were placed inside a hospital building in California before its controlled demolition. All four desks remained intact.
