CCRES promotes Levitating homes
A Japanese firm is turning to levitation as a means of safeguarding earthquake-prone homes against damaging tremors.
An in-a-nutshell explanation: When an earthquake hits, a seismic sensor
triggers the system and within a second, an air tank blasts a powerful
layer of compressed air in between the home and its artificial
foundation. As a result, the home lifts from the foundation and hovers
in mid-air at around 3 centimeters (a little over an inch). When the
shaking subsides, the floating home gently falls back into place.
