    Japan has had its share of natural disasters before, with teeth chattering earthquakes and the likes. So, here’s a post-apocalypse home concept design known as the EDV-01 from Japan sure seems a practical way to get a roof above one’s head in times of need and disaster. Produced by Daiwa House, this concept home actually springs up at the push of a button. Small and sturdy, these homes measuring 6m x 2.5m x 2.4m weigh about 10 tons. Complete with a bathroom, kitchen, beds, and satellite connectivity, these homes can house a couple of people comfortably. Here’s the green part. These homes are powered by fuel cells and batteries along with solar panels, allowing them to function smoothly even if the grid connectivity snaps!

    The Japanese sure have kept themselves prepared in case of any other calamities, and this design sure is the best way to disaster relief.
