This Pod Is A Portable, Self-Sufficient Luxury Home

If you thought living off the grid had to involve some degree of rugged deprivation, check out the Ecocapsule, an all-inclusive shelter pod that can be dropped off and lived in anywhere your aircraft, boat, or truck will go. It might be even more luxurious than your brick-and-mortar home.

Despite the Ecocapsule's simplistic shape, its self-sufficient mechanics reveal detailed, purpose-minded design. 

The spherical shape, for one, allows for optimal rainwater and dew collection, and works in conjunction with built-in water filters which allow users to take advantage of multiple water sources. 

A dual power system and high-capacity battery also serve as alternate power sources during times of reduced wind or solar activity (which your built-in 750W wind turbine and 2.6 m2 solar cells would translate into energy, of course). 

And, as if a self-powered, portable home weren't a convenience enough, the capsule comes equipped with a flushing toilet, hot water, folding bed, and kitchenette, so you can focus on whatever research or compulsion brought you into the great, non-suburban wild in the first place. 

Though pricing won't be announced until later this year, you can keep up with any updates here
