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.
