We saw this on Off Grid Quest and found it was begging to be shared...

If your fantasy is to live totally off the grid anywhere around the world, that dream just got one step closer to reality. Nice Architects just unveiled the first photos of their incredible egg-shaped Ecocapsule home - and the tiny solar and wind-powered dwelling will be available for sale later this year. Nice Architects has already completed a prototype, and they plan to ship the first units as soon as Spring 2016 - check out the first photos of this low-energy sanctuary after the break, and picture yourself living the dream.

Like the Swiss Army Knife of tiny homes, the Ecocapsule packs everything you need into one very efficient, compact design. Complete with rather luxurious amenities, including a double bed, kitchenette, storage space and bathroom with a shower and a toilet that collects bio waste, the Ecocapsule can be used as a tiny home, a pop-up hotel, a humanitarian refuge, or even an electric car charging station. Its 9744Wh battery is powered by a 750W silent wind turbine and 600W solar outputs that enable it to operate completely off-grid.

A dual-power system offers an additional source of electricity during periods without sufficient sunlight or wind. The structure’s rounded shape also helps to easily collect rainwater, which is then purified with a built-in filtration system. Check out Off Grid Quest to learn more.
