The Ecocapsule is a new super green micro dwelling

Nice Architect, a Slovakian company, has created the ecocapsule, a new kind of super green micro dwelling.  The ecocapsule is powered by a built-in wind turbine and solar cells, and its egg-like shape allows the collection of rainwater and dew.

It is also equipped with built-in water filters so you can use any water source without fearing falling ill to cholera. According to Nice Architect, “this creates an energy system that can support you almost an entire year in many off-grid locations”.

The capsule, although tiny (14.6 feet long and 7.4 feet wide), can house two adults, has a decent amount of storage space, and it has a kitchenette and a bathroom with running water.

The best part of the capsule is that, unlike a tiny house, it’s easily portable; hitch it to your truck and you’re off to explore somewhere new. It’s like tenting, but better.
