We, humans, tend to overcomplicate things when it comes to trying to figure out a basic low-cost solution to everyday problems.
But an image that has been shared on social media of a DIY ‘earthquake detection kit’ could prove why we are looking for too many over-complicated solutions to ‘simple’ problems.
The DIY kit consists of two of those ‘rolling eye’ things which you would typically find on a creepy teddy bear that your 18-year-old offspring still keeps in their bed.
So as soon as anyone spots the eyes moving, then they know for sure that some tremor is happening deep beneath the earth’s crust; either that or King Kong is making his way to your office block.
Of course, you would not want to put the life on the line when relying on such a simple way of being notified about a potential earthquake.
But something is better than nothing, right?
