I can’t believe I didn’t get wind of the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition when it was launched. Did you? Their description got me at the outset:
In the end who will save mankind from the Zombie Apocalypse? It is our belief that artists, designers, and architects will need to weigh in heavily to provide Safe Houses that can stand an assault on civilization. Don’t be caught unprepared, sign up today and register for the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition, you may be our last hope.
Sure, I have no hopes of joining the contest, but the results are amazing. The first prize of the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition (as deemed worthy by the jurors) went to what is known as the Vagabond Mobile Safe House Device.
The cool thing about the winner of the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition is that it is portable. You can carry it with you in a small bag wherever you go. After all, we do not know how and when the zombiecalypse will happen. With this safe house device, you can equip yourself and be ready whenever it occurs! And if the portability weren’t impressive enough, this safe house also is quick to set up. Within 3 minutes, you can seek safety in the device, which also has cloaking properties that will get the undead off your scent.
The second prize winner, which was decided by the general public, is the Oil Silo Home. It is an independent ecosystem, which provides three necessities: energy, defense, and food/water.
If you are not so mobile, and you like sticking to your comfort zone, the Oil Silo Home is the perfect zombie safe house for you. Obviously, it is disaster-proof and self-sufficient. What else do you need to survive in the event of a zombiecalypse? This structure is awesomely designed, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the producers/writers of zombie shows will pick it up in one form or another.
If you think these two designs from the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition are cool, wait till you see the rest.
