Russian man pitches 'Doomsday Pod'

Inventor says capsule will enable people to survive in event of apocalypse.

    A Russian inventor has designed what he says is the key to human survival in the event of an apocalypse.

    It's an armoured pod that Evgeny Ubiyko says can house around four people for days and endure extreme temperatures, including lava.

    To him, the contraption is a modern day Noah’s Ark.
