New Video Series Shows Us How To Survive The Apocalypse With Technology

CNET's Hacking the Apocalypse takes us around the world to show us how to live in the end of days.


When the apocalypse comes, it may be due to zombies, demons and ghosts attacking New York City, or alien invaders that can be hacked by Jeff Goldblum's Mac computer: any one of those three scenarios. However, we're all going to have to learn how to survive in the futuristic wasteland, and GameSpot's sister site CNET has a new series diving into the world of post-humanity survival.

Hacking the Apocalypse is a six-episode series that has debuted on CNET's YouTube, and three episodes are already available to watch. Below, you'll find the second episode for the series where CNET's Claire Reilly checks out a super-fancy underground bunker, complete with a classroom, library, and ridiculously large pool.

So $1.5 million is a pretty steep price if you want to live in an underground bunker, but there are other ways you can smarten-up to prepare yourself for the end of civilization. Below, you find the topics and release dates for upcoming episodes--and it's pretty wild that the first episode was about pandemics, with much of the episode filmed just months before the COVID-19 pandemic.
