In Japan, houses have been created that can rise several centimeters above the ground in the event of an earthquake and remain in this position until the end of the aftershocks.
This technology was developed in the past decade - however, they paid attention to it in the land of the rising sun only after the devastating earthquake of 2011.
The system, developed by the designers of Air Danshin Systems Inc., assumes the presence of a powerful airbag, allowing the house to hover above the ground at the right time, if necessary. A sensitive sensor can detect the onset of seismic activity in advance. It gives a signal that activates the air compressor. The latter takes seconds to fill the air with a special pillow between the house itself and its foundation. The thickness of such a pillow is only a few centimeters, but this is quite enough to reduce the damage from an earthquake many times.
After the end of the pushes, the house sits on a special frame around the basement perimeter. According to the new technology, about a hundred houses have already been built in Japan. Some of them are not very large buildings, destroyed by an earthquake seven years ago and then restored according to a new technology, without a rigid coupling with the foundation.
