Live off the grid

If you are one of those people who like to be prepared for any potential emergency - like the grid going down, you could always live off the grid in an egg-shaped Ecocapsule.

Slovakian group Nice Architects designed the 14.5-foot portable pod to generate its own clean energy from the sun and wind; 600-watt solar cells cover the roof, it has a retractable 750-watt wind turbine and it even collects rainwater. Popular Science added that the pod's central computer can be controlled via a mobile device; if there is a shortage of wind or sun, the pod's brain might suggest adjusting the temperature. If a sustainable tiny house appeals to you, Ecocapsules will be available in 2016 so you can live off the grid.
