Safety Coffins

August 4th, 2014

Loving the band name Fan Death and brainstorming with Mathew Lippincott and Stevie Lewis of Public Lab, I now want to start a band called The Safety Coffins. Mathew suggested the above image as an album cover, via Retronaut.

I first read about safety coffins in Michael Crichton’s The Great Train Robbery, but Wikipedia has a nice article with more pictures: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safety_coffin. TL;DR if you’re buried alive, there’s a bell you can ring to be let out. And food and stuff.

We also thought OSHA should publish guidelines for workplace safety for the dead. But do ghosts need handrails and HEPA filters?

Later that night, Joris showed Ilan his giant screw. 3D printed with a stock Ultimaker by connecting a really long z-belt to the ceiling! Joris is an incredibly talented modder of 3d printers.
