This is the tiny egg-shaped home that generates its own electricity and is even light enough to be carried between destinations by helicopter.

In a report for the Daily Mail, Jennifer Newton reviewed the tiny egg-shaped home.

The Ecocapsule, which is under 90 square feet, is the brain child of Slovakian designers and can be yours for under $100,000 (NZ$140,000).

Those behind the home say two people can live comfortably in the small space, which has a kitchen, a flushing toilet and a hot shower.

They also say the home can double as a caravan, houseboat or hotel.

It's made from insulated fibreglass shells and an aluminium framework and comes with a 750 watt wind turbine and 880 watts of solar.

Water comes in through the roof and is filtered, with the toilet, using a compost system.
