GraGraph home earthquake meter measures impending doom

As one of the most earthquake prone areas on the planet, Japan is constantly in a state of alert as most citizens await "the big one" scheduled to hit any day now. Now a new gadget called the GraGraph has been introduced for those who want to know exactly how big an earthquake they're experiencing in real-time, all from the comfort of their soon to be demolished homes.

Once an earthquake begins the device sounds a terrifying alert (the episode of "24" when nerve gas was released at CTU comes to mind). The alert is followed by a soothing electronic voice that lets you know the strength of the earthquake and exactly what you should to do save yourself. If you're a resident of the U.S. earthquake hotspot San Francisco, all this apocalyptic fun can be yours for just 9,800 yen ($85).
