  • Shelter – In the cute yet elegantly practical design reminiscent of the old Airstream travel travels and RVs, the Ecocapsule sports an aerodynamically shaped metal exoskeleton which aids in the collection of rainwater as well as providing a shape resistant to wind from and direction.
  • Water – The rainwater collecting system uses the shape of the shelter to direct the water into a holding tank, where the water is filtered for drinking.
  • Energy Generation– Solar & Wind power completes this ingenious micro-home. With a 750 watt wind turbine, 600 integrated solar panel system, and energy storage.
  • Energy Storage – It comes complete with 9744Wh (9.7kWh) off grid battery energy storage system.

They are also making a mobile travel camper version of the Ecocapsule.

“Ecocapsule has been designed by Nice Architects -a young architectural studio based in Bratislava, Slovakia. Ecocapsule is a low-energy house packed into a compact form. It merges an energy efficient shape, compact volume and off-grid capabilities with the luxuries of a warm bed, running water and a hot meal. Even though small in size, each Ecocapsule comfortably houses two adults. Its efficient spatial layout allows you to enjoy convenience of household facilities in off-grid conditions. Built-in kitchenette with running water, flushing toilet and hot shower are luxuries of a hotel room that are now also available in wilderness. Plenty of storage space also fits all your sport or research equipment. Despite its small form each Ecocapsule is fitted with all essentials necessary for a comfortable prolonged stay without a need to recharge or re-supply. Ecocapsule is powered by a built-in wind turbine complemented with an array of solar cells. Dual power system and a high-capacity battery ensures that you will have enough power during periods of reduced solar or wind activity. Spherical shape is optimized for the collection of rainwater and dew and the built-in water filters allow you to utilize any water source.” Ecocapsule

“First public display of the Ecocapsule will be during Pioneers festival in Vienna (28-29th May 2015). Later it will be displayed in Slovak national pavilion at Expo 2015.”

The Ecocapsule is the perfect off grid choice for the tiny house people out there.
