Have you ever have a dream of living near the sea? Your mornings will be filled of wave sounds rushing to the shores. Sure you will be greatly delighted to go out and smell the sea breeze and how amazing it is to step into the sand.
How about living into the the woods where you can run down to the hidden pine trails of the forest? Now, it is not just a mere dream, as you can actually live almost anywhere on this earth in a futuristic Ecocapsule.
WHAT IS AN ECOCAPSULE
Ecocapsule is a portable house which gives a taste of incomparable living. This particular house is built for infinity aside from its worldwide portability it also offers flexibility since it is powered by solar and wind energy. Apart from that it can also capture and filter rainwater and dew.
The company which is called Bratislava, Slovakia gives as a glimpse of what will be the future holds for future living. In response to today’s trend as there is a significant increase of people who prefers living for more affordable, easy-to-maintain spaces by ditching their large, expensive-to-operate homes.
The future peak of today’s trend which is the tiny-house movement is presented by the company with its Ecocapsules. This fully portable living space is designed by Nice Architects.
The egg-shape capsule measures 14.6 feet (about 4.5 meters) long by 7.9 feet (2.4 meters) wide by 8.2 feet (about 2.5 meters) tall. Into that space the designers have managed to pack a folding bed, a table and two chairs, a small kitchen and a toilet and bath. There are also a few storage spaces and working windows.
The roof of the Ecocapsule is covered with solar cells, and there’s a retractable pole to which a 750W wind turbine is attached. Both power sources charge an on-board battery, so even if you encounter calm or cloudy weather, you’d still be able to have some power. Nice Architects says the energy system should be able to support someone living off the grid for almost a year.
The initial plan of Nice Architects is to unveil its first Ecocapsule at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna later this month and they target to receive orders by the end of this year and the delivery of finish products will be in early 2016.
Pertaining to how portable and how flexible it is the creators of this tiny yet functional home said that “It can be shipped, airlifted, towed or even pulled by a pack animal.”
