You could be forgiven for having assumed that the Ecocapsule wouldn’t ever be built when we first covered it. However, the zany egg-shaped off-grid abode is now available for pre-order.

The Ecocapsule’s dimensions have changed slightly since we saw the prototype. It now measures 4.46 x 2.25 x 2.60 m (14 x 7.3 x 8.5 ft) and has a usable floorspace of just 6.3 sq m (67.8 sq ft). The shell is built from fiberglass, with standout off-grid tech features including two water tanks, a rainwater collection/filtration system, composting toilet, solar power, and a wind turbine.

The tiny home also sports external connections for electricity and water, plus anchor points for a trailer attachment due for release sometime in the future. Optional extras include a mini-fridge, mini-washing machine, mosquito net, and folding sunshade.
