Those fearful of earthquakes are going to want to take a long look at the Wood-Luck Bed. Shinko Industries’ earthquake-proof bed is made from cyprus wood that has been aged 30 to 40 years. The aging of the wood gives it the strength to handle loads as high as 60 tons.

If you aren’t someone who lives on or near a fault line, then the Spartan design of the Wood-Luck Bed may drive you away. It’s high price point, with a single going for $5,700 and a semi-dobule selling for $6,300, is another factor that could deter buyers. Still, the Wood-Luck Bed should find interested buyers in places that sit right on fault lines such as Japan and California.
