In Japan, houses have been created that can rise by several centimeters above the earth's surface in the event of an earthquake and remain in this position until the end of the tremors. The system assumes the presence of a powerful air cushion, which allows the house, if necessary, to hover above the ground for the right time. The sensitive sensor is capable of detecting the onset of seismic activity in advance. It gives a signal to activate the air compressor. The latter takes a few seconds to fill with air 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 significantly reduce damage from an earthquake.
