This Self-Sustainable Smart Micro-Home Lets You Live Off-The-Grid, Anywhere

Meet Ecocapsule, a smart, self-sustainable micro-home designed in Slovakia, that’s powered solely by solar and wind energy. It enables you to live off-the-grid in remote places out of reach of infrastructure in an accommodation that feels like a luxury hotel room.

The smart portable pod home is designed as an independent housing for two but can also be custom-built to serve as a cottage, pop-up hotel, caravan, mobile office, research station, or anything you want it to be. It’s engineered to be as self-sufficient, practical and functional as possible.



It has a floor area of 6.3m2 with a sleeping capacity for 1-2 people. The furniture includes a desk, cabinets, racks, folding bed with mattress, kitchenette cabinets and baggage cabinet. In the bathroom, it has a waterless toilet with a water-saving faucet and showerhead for washing.

The tiny house is made from insulated fiberglass shells overlaid on a steel framework. It has high-efficiency solar cells that provide 880W of solar power and its low-noise wind turbine provides 750W during the day and night. The surface collects, filters and stores rainwater in a water tank.
