New Delhi: Is it possible to predict the coming of natural calamities like earthquake? Well, it might be shocking to some of us but the truth is you can predict it.

An artist named Moon Ribas from Spain is one such person who can feel every earthquake that occurs in any part of the world in real time.

According to a report in Daily Mail, Ribas can feel it after she got implanted a seismic sensor under her skin that senses an earthquake. And whenever there is an earthquake, the implant under her skin vibrates.

This 30 year-old Spanish got the vibrating chip implanted near her elbow three years ago and since then callls herself 'cyborg artist'.

The sensor chip in Ribas's arm is connected to a smartphone app that is connected to geological monitors around the world.

The strength of the vibrations depends on how strong the earthquake is, Ribas tells QZ.com as reported.

Last year, when Nepal was devastated by a 7.8 magnitude quake, Ribas woke up in the middle of the night as the vibrations were so strong.
