Bratislava,Slovakia-based Nice Architects made quite a splash when it unveiled its Eco capsule micro-shelter back in May, even though all we had to go on at the time were some interesting renders. In the months since, the firm has turned pixels into prototype product, and hopes to start shipping its novel egg-shaped tiny home in early 2016.
The current prototype Eco capsule measures 2.55 x 4.45 x 2.25 m (8.36 x 14.5 x 7.31 ft),and comprises a total floor space of roughly 10 sq m (107 sq ft), though usable floor space will be significantly less than this thanks to the furniture installed. It weighs in at 1,500 kg (3,306 lb).
Sustainable technology earmarked for the final product includes a 9,744 Wh battery array, a roof-based 600 W solar array, and a 750 W wind turbine that's affixed to are tractable pole.
Unfortunately,Nice Architects will not be ready to commit to a price until later this year,though we do know that shipping to New York, Johannesburg, and Melbourne are expected to cost €2,200 (US$2,500), €2,700 ($3,000), and €1,500 ($1,700),respectively.
