Portable, solar-powered ecocapsules mean you can live rent- and electric-bill free, globally

If you’ve just had it with taking the subway, or sitting in an office, or just generally being around other people, you may be in luck. Slovakian firm Nice Architects has built an egg-shaped “Ecocapsule” that runs entirely on solar and wind energy, allowing its dweller(s) to live both literally, and figuratively, off the grid.

 

The completely self-sustaining portable home contains a 9,744 watt-hour battery, a 750 watt wind turbine, and high-efficiency solar cells that can support you for about a year in pretty much any location in the world, provided there is some sunlight. (It probably wouldn’t work in a cave, for instance, should someone desire to live in one.)

The capsule also includes a rainwater collection and filtration system. Inside, there’s a kitchenette with running water, a flushable toilet, a shower, a bed, and work space. Nice Architects says the capsule, which is about 4.5 meters (14.7 feet) long and 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) wide, can comfortably fit two people.

The egg-home can be “easily transported” by trailer, according to the company, and can even charge the electric car that’s towing it.

 But beyond just nomadic living, the Ecocapsule has plenty of other potential applications, from providing shelter in disaster areas to doubling as scientific research stations.
 Nice Architects will unveil its prototype at the Pioneers festival in Vienna on May 28 before taking pre-orders at the end of 2015 for shipping in the first half of 2016. The company says the price will be released later this year, though there’s already a steep shipping cost. Sending the capsule from Slovakia to New York, for instance, will cost you €2,200 ($2,383) alone, and the capsule itself is likely to run to tens of thousands of dollars.

Tara is a big girl who thought her relationship with her fiancé was going great until he decided to leave her for a skinny little bitch. Tara has always been a confident woman, but now her self-esteem has been shredded. To make things worse, work is stressful and she doesn’t even have time to think about the breakup and decide what to do next. So, when her best friend suggests a vacation on the tropical paradise island of Barbados, Tara immediately accepts. She really needs to relax, figure out her life, and allow her wounds to heal. Unfortunately, destiny has other plans for her: a freak accident on a Caribbean beach leaves Tara with a magical gift that makes her irresistible to men. Of course, this is great because her gift rebuilds her self-esteem and throws her into the arms of a sexy mega millionaire pro-athlete. The bad news is that it also draws the attention of an evil billionaire wizard who likes to take what he wants without asking questions.

Now, Tara has to find a way to fight the evil wizard and protect her friends. One might say her life has become even more complicated than before, but at least now she knows what true love really feels like. She is determined to find a way out of this mess and get her happily-ever-after.
