Pod-Shaped Home Collects Wind And Solar Power So You Can Live Just About Anywhere In The World

May 29, 2015

If you ever had a dream about going off the grid for a while, Nice Architects, a Slovakian company based in Bratislava, has got you covered. Their Ecocapsule design is inspired by the principles of the tiny house movement and utilizes an extremely efficient layout to fit everything you'd need into one elegant, totally self-sustainable pod.

Each Ecocapsule is equipped with a retractable wind turbine, solar panels and features a design that maximizes collection of rainwater. Inside, it's equipped with a kitchenette, toilet and hot shower, all with running water.

The Ecocapsule will be available for purchase in 2016.

It runs off wind and solar power, and also collects rainwater.


Two people can sleep comfortably inside the capsule, which offers around 86 square feet of space.

The self-sufficient nature of the pods makes them ideal for emergency housing situations.

They're portable enough to be towed with a trailer. 

The built-in kitchenette has running water, the toilet flushes, and you can even take a hot shower.


The walls are well insulated for maximum energy efficiency.

Here's a look at the schematics for the interior.

It's great for humanitarian or research missions, but I'd probably just take it camping.
