The "Ecocapsule" is a self-supporting mini-house where you can live without receiving electricity or water from the outside. To achieve this, it is equipped with solar panels, propellers, and filters that collect and filter rainwater.
Solar panels use sunlight and propellers use wind to generate electricity for indoor use. The combination of solar and wind power complements each other's shortcomings and provides most of the power needed for most of the year, except for parts of January and November.
The filtered rainwater is stored in two tanks in the room and used in the kitchen and shower.
The outer dimensions of the "Ecocapsule" are 4.46x2.25x2.60 meters, and the floor area of the living space is 6.3 square meters. This is about 3.5 tatami mats in size.
Although 3.5 tatami mats are by no means large, it is quite possible for two adults to spend a short period of time. For example, the bed is expandable and can be pulled out to sleep two people. Also, the table for work and meals is designed for two adults.
A biotype that does not use water was adopted for the toilet. You can also install a refrigerator or washing machine as an option.
