Tiny Wind & Solar Powered Home Lets You Live Off The Grid Anywhere In The World
Ecocapsules, designed by Bratislava-based Nice Architects, promise to let anyone live off the grid for up to a year. Each unit is equipped with solar panels, a retractable wind-turbine, and a design that captures rain water. Inside, you’ll find a kitchenette with running water, a flushing toilet, and hot shower.
The Ecocapsule “is suitable for a wide range of applications,” write the designers, such as an “independent research station or a tourist lodge to an emergency housing or a humanitarian-action unit.”
This year you will be able to live off the grid in one of these Ecocapsules.
The Ecocapsule relies on wind and solar power, and collects rain water
Its interior can comfortably sleep two, and provide 8 sq meters of living space
These pods could be deployed anywhere in case of emergency
Ecocapsules fit in a sea-container or can be towed on a trailer
