I have been seeing this all over the internet, at least in the circles where I virtually travel. It’s called an Ecocapsule, and capsule is what it is, this is a self contained off grid, tiny, little, cute(?), spot to live for a while, it’s not meant for full time living, though I suspect some might be able to do it. It’s really designed to be your vacation pod, a place where you can have most of the comforts of home without having to be hooked up to the grid. It’s portable, it’s small, did I mention it’s small? I love sharing tiny homes, but this really goes beyond that.
It has a very European look (to me), with its rounded corners, well there actually aren’t any corners to speak of, it looks like an egg. It does have everything you would need, a bed, a table, shower & toilet, and a small kitchen area, there is a little storage, very little. It is solar & wind powered and collects rain water.
There are apparently going to be different finishes inside, from warm wood, to a granite look, I’m sure you could custom order other finishes.
I have seen a variety of responses to this, from it’s cute, to no way I could do that… what do you think? Gimmick or will it work?
