Chinese Farmer Creates Apocalypse Survival Pods

Chinese farmer Liu Qiyuan enters one of his survival pods, designed to withstand the so-called "Mayan apocalypse."

 

Having a tough time shopping for the survivalist on your holiday gift list? An entrepreneur in China has created the perfect stocking stuffer — if your stockings are the size of a one-car garage — a steel-and-fiberglass survival pod sturdy enough to weather any apocalypse.

Inspired by the movie "2012," which tells the tale of the Mayan doomsday that some people claim is scheduled for Dec. 21, farmer Liu Qiyuan designed and manufactured several spherical pods large enough to hold 14 people, according to RT.com. Each pod comes equipped with water, food and oxygen tanks; they even can be outfitted with seatbelts in case of rolling Earth tremors or tsunami waves.
