Atom bomb survival suit patent from 1958


This atomic bomb survival suit looks like something Chris Ware would have in one of his comic books.

John Ptak says:

Is there anything more revolting than this solitary, encapsulated,  iron maidenesque survival sarcophagus and its promised hope of survivability? 

Perhaps not.  This patent application for an individual survival suit from 1958 gives us something to think about, perhaps gives us the cause to imagine what the world would look like from the inside of that portable evacuation chamber (that had its own attache case for storage).
