The Ecocapsule is self-contained egg-shaped, mobile dwelling with solar and wind energy. Sona Pohlova and Tomáš Žáček created the original design in 2014 for an American client “who had a big ranch where he didn’t have any infrastructure and he needed some living units for visitors”. They spent 5 years turning their plans into a prototype. The unit is not an example of “natural building,” but it does have a number of design features that make it rather interesting.
Today they are selling their EcoCapsule – complete with shower and toilet, sleeping area for two, and kitchenette – to anyone looking to “stay in the nature for long time, for example scientists, photographers, rangers or extreme tourists” or someone interested in installing one on a city rooftop. The price for the original design is about $93,000 US.
The pods are highly mobile: they can easily be pulled by a pickup truck or even airlifted by helicopter (for those rooftop needs). There’s even an app-controlled smart-home system and sensors that help you monitor your energy and water use. https://www.ecocapsule.sk/
