Powered by the earth's shaking this machinery responds with a
counter shaking wave in an attempt to cancel out the waves and
hopefully creating a "silence bomb" similar to what my friend Alexi
was working on years ago at IBM for sound, and which I saw my
nephew wear on his ears.
we cannot cancel the ground shaking, but we can cancel
a building from shaking, and if we do it in a coordinated effort we
could protect whole neighborhoods and cities.

balloon in the case of a combined earthquake and tsunami.

out of the way, way above you),
