Ecocapsule is an egg-shaped capsule created by a group of Slovakian designers. It is designed to let two people live a sustainable life “off the grid” for up to a year.
The capsule is, as the name implies, eco-friendly. Ecocapsule generates its own electricity from solar panels and a wind turbine, where the excess power is stored in an on-board battery pack.
Rainwater is gathered from the curved roof into storage tanks, where the water can be purified.

Not just science fiction!
We see good ideas, blueprints and prototypes of many new inventions all the time. Many will never be released, but Ecocapsule is for real. The production is set to start this year, with an entry price of €79 000 ($ 84 800) for the first 50 units.
Interested? You can preorder yours today!

A more affordable second generation will be released in 2017.
The capsule can be towed behind a car, much like any other mobile home. The 86 sq. ft. capsule packs a double bed, plenty of storage space, a desk, shower, toilet and a fully equipped kitchen.
