Flying home is not damaged during the earthquake - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

Researchers have developed a hoverboard (board, soaring thanks to the magnets), shared their plans to save homes from earthquakes. They believe that in the event of a natural disaster the building can be lifted from the ground by a giant magnet, and this manipulation will help prevent damage.

Greg Henderson (Greg Henderson), co-founder and CEO of Arx Pax, explained that already has a patent on a system using water and gas, which will also take your home off the ground. However, the new version will be based on the magnets, rather than liquids. This project was developed about a year.

"Our goal is to eliminate the structural movement - says Henderson. - It is necessary to calculate the exact time when the object should raise their chassis and hoverdvigateli - activated".

ArxPax uses magnets to create a field similar to that allows maglev train ride on an air cushion. In this case, there is no friction, and the opportunity to travel to the ultra-fast speeds.

In order to make the three-storey house to hover for 90 seconds (the average length of a series of aftershocks of the earthquake), you must use the energy of five car batteries, the total amount of the assUrances Arx Pax, about 13 dollars.

Instead of building a large water-filled bases and foundations, the new project Arx Pax requires the installation of earthquake-proof base and hoverdvigateley.

"The system of the foundation consists of three parts, and it can provide real protection during earthquakes, floods and rising sea levels. These pieces - a protective frame buffer environment and the platform. The building will be directly on the platform, and the buffer medium can be filled with a liquid , liquefied gas or substance "- says Henderson.

If the buffer medium - is a liquid, the platform may be designed based on this that the building will hang on it like a float in the lake. The medium should be selected on the basis of this that seismic waves do not transmit energy to it, the water just has this property.

Upon receipt of warnings about the earthquake, the computer includes hoverdvigateli that raise the building (it only takes one second).

Developers also noted that its patent they included software Shake Alert - an early warning of earthquakes.

The program uses the geophysical network, operated by the University of California at Berkeley, California Institute of Technology, the University of Washington and the US geosluzhboy. He has successfully detect earthquakes in California and warn them before people felt the tremors.

Arx Pax called their alliance a new valuable tool for architects, engineers and developers who are looking for the best ways to build in the regions often suffer from such disasters.

It is also likely that this technology will continue to be modified for a variety of other applications, such as the aviation industry, in search of more effective systems for takeoff.
