Ecocapsule ORIGINAL is a main product of Ecocapsule Ltd. - a group of Slovak ecology enthusiasts led by architect Ing. arch Tomáš Žáček. The smart, sustainable, beautiful, portable, fully equipped micro-unit of a beloved egg-shape looking like out of space is made for mid-term housing for 1-2,5 people (2 adults + 1 child up to 6y) anywhere, since it’s off-grid. Perfectly suitable to be an off-grid getaway, cottage, houseboat or a virus-free accommodation for resorts, or for special usage such as being a base for astronomers, wilderness-photographers, etc. Powered only by solar and wind energy via wind turbine and solar cap you can place it anywhere. The shape is ovate so the collection of rainwater and morning dew is maximized. Ecocapsule is 100% self-sustainable and provides high comfort of accommodation anywhere off-grid. The filter system of Ecocapsule can turn rainwater or water from any source [almost] to drinkable. After usage, no water (black, grey) leaves the capsule, everything stays inside waiting to be emptied manually somewhere appropriate, not to nature. Staying in Ecocapsule presuppose ecological behavior, that means saving energy. It has it’ s own app, which according the weather forecast calculates, how much energy and water is going to be collected, so you can plan on energy usage (cooking, showering, charging electrical devices, etc.).
