So you survived the quake--now what?

Device includes radio, flashlight and charger

Being firmly ensconced in earthquake country, Crave has always taken a keen interest in anything that claims to provide early warning--or any warning--before The Big One hits.

And just our luck, Tokyomango gives us a two-fer that addresses our twin obsessions of quakes and technology with an item titled "Super Multifunctional Earthquake Detecting Device." We're not exactly sure how it's supposed to detect earthquakes, but it apparently has plenty to help keep you occupied while you wait for one, including a radio, an LED flashlight and a charger for multiple devices.

But if you're dubious about this gadget's accuracy (such a cynic), you might want to batten things down just in case.
