Earthquake-Proof House

Earthquakes strike without warning and require very little time to do unimaginable damage. Help is at hand, however, as the Smash Lab mavericks look for a home-saving solution in the hold of an aircraft. Aircrafts use a ball-bearing floor system to move cargo with almost zero friction -- a technology that may be used to isolate a house from a shaking ground. The final answer is found only after much testing and building an artificial earthquake machine capable of going right off the Richter scale.
