Forget the zombie apocalypse for a moment. What if a real disaster struck your neighborhood? Where would you, or relief workers, take shelter?

As thousands of Japanese are still coping with the aftermath of the 2011 Tohoku quake and tsunami, Osaka-based Daiwa Lease recently showed off this shipping container, a home for disaster zones.

The EVD-01 Emergency Disaster Vehicle was announced last year with an action film-style video of computer graphics, but the video below from a housing trade show in Tokyo shows the real prototype.

It’s the size of a standard 20-foot shipping container and can be transported by land, sea, and air with relative ease.
