Ecocapsule, a sustainably-powered mobile micro dwelling, now available for purchase

Sustainably-Powered Ecocapsule Micro Dwelling Now Up For Sale-1

This June, we brought to you an innovative mobile micro-shelter concept, called Ecocapsule, which gives you the freedom to live off grid, without having to compromise any of the comforts. Designed by Bratislava-based Nice Architects, this ingenious renewable energy-powered dwelling has finally hit the market, and is currently available for pre-order, under a limited-edition series of 50 pods.

Measuring around 175.9 x 94.7 x 97.9 inches in dimensions, this micro habitat has a total floor area of only 86 sq ft (approx. 8 sq m). Despite the structure’s somewhat compact design, the interiors are surprisingly spacious, housing a folding bed for two, a work area that doubles as the dining space, a kitchenette equipped with two-burner stove and a sink, and also a bathroom with shower and waterless, composting toilet.

Featuring an insulated fiberglass and durable aluminium exterior, the Ecocapsule weighs only around 3,307 lbs (or 1,500 kg). What is more, it comes fitted with four wheels and two roof-mounted hooks that ensure easy transportation, either towed by a van or dropped via a helicopter or crane. The pod runs entirely on renewable energy, by means of a 2.6 sq m (around 28 sq ft) photovoltaic array that feeds into a built-in 10 kWh battery system. The shelter also sports a 750 W wind turbine, and an advanced rainwater collection system.

All aspects of the Ecocapsule can be controlled with the help of a specially-designed smartphone application. Priced at 79,000 € (approx. US$86,000), the mobile micro dwelling can be pre-ordered by buyers from the United States, the European Union, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Shipping is expected to commence sometime in the early part of 2017.
