Life Cube Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of inflatable survival shelters will seem on A+E Network?s History?s ?Invention USA? on December 16, 2011 at ten:30 PM PST (Episode Four, ?Helter Shelter?). Invented by Santa Barbara, Calif. entrepreneur Michael Conner, the military-grade Life Cube is a ground-breaking portable shelter that can be airdropped to remote places and inflated within five minutes to give instant protection from the elements although delivering water, food, heat and other necessities for survival.
Hosted by noted researchers and scientists Reichart Von Wolfsheild and Garrett Lisi, ?Invention USA? seeks out ?breakthrough inventions? and rigorously screens thousands of inventors, selecting only two per episode and offering investment capital to inventions that make the grade. Life Cube Inc., the shelter?s developer and manufacturer bills it as ?the globe?s only shelter program encased inside a cube-shaped shipping container which converts into a challenging surface floor, creating it perfect for rapid deployment in remote places and rugged terrain?.
Mr. Conner says his firm sent in a submission to History following hearing about the plan earlier this year. ?I felt we stood an superb opportunity of catching their attention simply because there is absolutely nothing like Life Cube on the marketplace these days. Although its life saving prospective has been enthusiastically evaluated by the U.S. military, Natick, FEMA, several NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) and the United Nations in Geneva, we?ve by no means had national network television exposure which I think appealed to the show?s producers.?
In the course of production of the episode featuring Life Cube, Mr. Conner says ?Invention USA? hosts scientists Wolfsheild and Lisi ?genuinely put the Cube by means of extraordinarily rigorous testing?.
?They performed many endurance and practicality tests, all of which I assume strongly make the case for the necessity of Life Cube getting adopted for a wide spectrum of applications when human lives are at stake,? Mr. Conner comments.
Invented and blueprinted entirely on his kitchen table, Mr. Conner says he came up with the thought for his ?shelter in a cube? soon after witnessing the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and the enormous Kashmir earthquake in Pakistan, each of which occurred in 2005 and left a wake of death with millions of victims without having shelter for weeks or months. What puts Life Cube in a class of its own as a temporary shelter he explains is its rapid deployment capability. Each and every Life Cube is equipped with a battery-powered blower which offers instant inflation and assembly by just two people.
?Its ready for use inside 5 minutes as a 144 square foot refuge with an 11 foot high ceiling delivering shelter and food and water for 5 days for up to 5 individuals,? he adds.
Among Life Cube?s common attributes are a self-enough, solar powered power program, communications equipment, water filtration devices, propane or kerosene cook leading, 1st aid kits, ready-to-eat meals (MREs) and a wide variety of essential survival supplies. Completely U.S.-produced, every single Life Cube is manufactured and assembled entirely in Florida and California.
