Many of the technologies that are changing the landscape of our society – automation, artificial intelligence and social media – have, of course, come from Silicon Valley. Now, it looks like the same people who brought us these innovations are preparing to get themselves well out of harm’s way when the fallout from those technologies hits. Former Facebook product manager, Antonio Garcia-Martinez believes that “automation and artificial intelligence are going to make it such that close to half of American jobs won’t exist in 20, 30 years.” This could trigger widespread social unrest and the super-rich want to defend themselves against that.
An entire compound has been built for the super-rich in case a natural or manmade disaster ensues. The luxury doomsday bunker is 15-storeys underground and can withstand everything from extreme weather such as tornadoes to a nuclear attack. The bunkers come with concrete walls which are 9 feet thick and each facility even has more than 54,000 square feet of protected space.

Survival Condo is an American company that develops deluxe post-apocalyptic apartments.They have turned former missile silos into swanky bachelor pads for people who are super-paranoid as well as super-rich. Survival Condo have decked out the pads with everything that the rich would need to survive. Residents can have access to an indoor swimming pool, a cinema, a gymnasium, a bar and a general store. The whole survival condo structure is designed to support up to 70 residents for five years of completely off-the-grid living. Hydroponic vegetables can be grown under lamps and tilapia fish can be raised in fish tanks, both of which can sustain those living in the bunker. Survival Condo claims that they “have the highest level of military grade security that offers both lethal and nonlethal measures in order [to] protect our residents.”
