Hey kids, make your own nuclear power for your community. On the drawing boards of Hyperion Power Generation is a portable nuclear reactor about the size of a hot tub. Bury it in the back yard, fill up the ol' reactor with uranium, and if you don't blow up, you're making power. The plan is to have a factory in New Mexico by 2012.

Implications - Discussion of natural disasters and nuclear threats has increased in recent years. As a result, the importance of being prepared for 'the big one' has increased. Corporations that are able to harness these concern by developing products that would prove useful in the event of unforeseen circumstances can benefit by appealing to safety-conscious consumers.
