This Eco-Friendly Egg Capsule Lets You Live Anywhere You Want In The World

Have you ever wanted to just get away from it all?

The EcoCapsule may just be the next, best thing.

It’s basically what every camper dreams of – a small, low-energy capsule that’ll allow you to live off-the-grid, in a completely sustainable way. This new, eco-friendly innovation takes living freely and independently to a whole new level.

Created by Slovakia-based Nice Architects, they’re now on the market.

Inside, there’s just enough furniture to make you feel at home. Designed with lightweight honeycomb panels and a nice wood veneer finish, the furniture includes a desk, cabinets, racks, and a small-scale, cozy folding bed with a mattress.

The pods feature a bed, storage, and small cooking area.

Engineered from scratch, the egg-shaped pods are a practical solution for independent living for 1-2 people (for only up to a year in certain places, according to the legal note on their website).

Because they’re self-sustainable, you won’t need to hook anything up for power or water. It’s able to generate its own from the surrounding environment.

Your water comes from one of two sources.

Water is collected over time as rainwater, or you can top it up yourself from natural resources like rivers or streams.

Of course, it’s not drinkable just yet – the water is then cleaned via a series of filters in the pod, including a reverse osmosis filter.

This system filters out nearly 99.998% of dirt and particles, so you’ll be left with completely clean water that’s safe to consume.

Where would you stay? By the beach? On top of a mountain? In the middle of the countryside?

The wind and solar-powered capsule is made from high-capacity, insulated fiberglass shells on top of an aluminum framework.

Depending on where you stay, the weather may affect how much power you’re able to produce.

A low-noise wind turbine generates power, and the pods’ self-sufficient energy system also features several high-efficiency solar panels on top of the roof.

What do you do when, err – nature calls?

The eco-friendly pod has a waterless, composting and separating toilet. For their second generation of units, the manufacturers are working on including electric-powered incinerating toilets.

Because they’re still new to the market, the capsules do cost a pretty hefty price at 79,000 Euros (which is roughly $86,000 in USD), plus shipping costs and any applicable customs fees or taxes.    

If you’re willing to wait (or just don’t have a money tree in your backyard) technology is known to come down in price after the first year, and you can still put a deposit down now for the next, cheaper version available.
