Time To Say Goodnight!

Talk about getting away – where you park is your home! Here is one of the most unique living spaces I have ever seen!

In this time of #shelteringinplace, would you be interested in this #quarantinelife?

living capsule

Here is how it is explained on Huffington Post:

“Ecocapsule is a tiny, 86 square-foot living capsule that, as soon as next year, will enable owners to live virtually anywhere. Each mobile pod comes with sleeping space for two, a mini kitchen, a fully functional toilet and shower, storage space, a desk and two windows.”

I have posted about these incredibly cute – and incredibly small – pods, which are now for sale, so if you are ready to buy your own “weekend getaway home” here you go! Here’s what really makes them self-sufficient: they harvest their own rainwater and remove all bacteria, so you have your own water supply! They can also power themselves using the sun and wind!

The $98,000 Mobile Egg!

The Slovakia-based Nice Architects have created this cute “mobile egg” that sells for about $98,000 – they estimate that it will cost about $2,400 to have a pod shipped to the US.

Would you live inside an egg?

DROP XL Futuristic living capsule

Meet The Drop XL!

And I need to also show you the “DROP XL”, which calls itself:

“a large version of the organically-shaped removable hotel suit DROP eco-hotel. The DROP modules are part of the large emerging trend in the field of modular microarchitecture, suitable for being placed wherever the heart desires and the land permits!”

I think these are all adorable little getaways pods, if you are a fan of “tiny homes” then these are for you!

Of course all of this reminds me of another type of incredible getaway I could use right now:

Talk About “Sleeping With The Fishes!”

One day, once we are back to our “new normal”, I want to stay in this “underwater hotel room”!

Here’s my story about the incredible underwater hotel, where you sleep in the deep! Read all about it here:

I love how people have found ingenious ways to make use of “available space”. Perhaps the best example is this:

Amazing outdoor pools

Yes, don’t let being stuck at home in your skyscraper keep you from doing some laps in your own pool! Read all about these amazing “skyscraper pools” here:

  3. I think this is a brilliant idea, John, and ecofriendly too. What more could we ask?

  4. I think I could cope with that in a place where the weather was mostly good. I couldn’t imagine living in one through a Beetley winter. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Yes, I want one – I suppose you might need your own personal helicopter to drop your egg where you want it!

  6. What a ‘cracking’ design! These are actually super cute and more spacious than I’d expected considering it’s a proper living space with washing facilities etc, too. Impressive!
