If you have a hankering to live off the grid in a self-contained pod, “the compact Ecocapsule fits all the home necessities within an egg-shaped space measuring 4.5 meters (14.6 feet) in length, 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) in width, and 2.5 meters in height (8.2 feet).”


The Ecocapsule is described as a portable, low-energy, green dwelling that will comfortable house two adults.Ecocapsule-by-Nice-Architects-3While portable, you have to transport the 1500 kilogram pod to your location.  They are said to fit in a shipping container.

They do have the ability to generate power from the wind turbine and solar cells, and can collect and filter rainwater.


The pods are currently in the design phase, although delivery of actual capsules is anticipated in 2016.


I don’t know about long-term living, but they look like they are a huge step up from tent camping.
