The eco-capsule: A movable, environmentally-friendly mini home | ceramics and art | Scoop.it
It's not an egg, it's a micro-home that packs an impressive sustainable punch.
Robbiv Hood's insight:

The home is powered by a retractable wind turbine that’s complemented with the solar cells that give it its futuristic look.

So that you can still charge your phone or have a shower while it’s raining, there’s a “high-capacity battery system”, charged by the wind turbine.
