Portable, Enviromentally friendly Ecocapsule

ecocapsuleA Slovakian architecture firm has started selling environmentally-friendly pod homes for a fraction of the cost of most Aussie real estate.

Prices for the micro-homes, called Ecocapsules, start at €79,900 ($121,000 Aus)  ($86,000 USA dollars) and they can be shipped to Australia for €1,900.
