40 Earthquake Innovations

From Post-Disaster Homes to On-The-Go Earthquake Alerts

— January 3, 2010 — Art & Design
No one ever wants to have to use one of the earthquake innovations in the slideshow below, but as a SoCal native, I've gotta keep tabs on the ultimate mover and shaker in the realm of natural disasters. From mobile earthquake alerts to portable and pop-up homes, we've got you covered from start to finish. Check out these and more earthquake innovations below.

Implications - Natural disasters can be considered imanent and unavoidable, however similar to life insurance sale, preparation for such events is vital. All industries can consider introducing lighthearted advertising and pleasant designs that make even the most dreadful topics and purchases pleasant for people. Consumers are more likely to take note of your product or service if it can offer a refreshing angle.
