sCarabane collapsible caravan rotates 360-degree to harness solar energy

Green-Cat-Technologies-sCarabane

France-based Green Cat Technologies has created a versatile, foldable sCarabane caravan that’s capable of providing tiny off-grid living in any remote location. It folds up into a box-like unit for easy transportation. When on the desired destination, it can fold out into a spacious living space that’s powered by sun and wind energy.

It rests on a circular track that lets the housing structure rotate 360-degrees at camp to track the sun through a parabolic mirror and generate electricity and hot water. sCarabane is further equipped with a telescopic vertical axis wind turbine to generate 500 watts of clean power. There are even solar cells for the renewable energy generation, providing another 500 watts.

One person can easily fold/unfold it without help

The living system consists of movable walls that effortlessly make indoors interact with outdoors. The kitchen area can connect with a full-length deck outside all thanks to the fold-out hatch. Inside the dwelling, there is a 77.5-square-feet contemporary master bedroom and a 59-square-feet children’s bedroom. Both bedrooms open to the outdoors with a full-size door. These rooms also include rose windows on the roofs to let the user control sunlight intensity inside.

Even the dining area in the kitchen can turn up into an extra bed to accommodate guests. The bathroom area has a toilet, sink, shower, and compact washing machine. Furthermore, a rotating bubble window at the rear allows inhabitants to enjoy outside views.

sCarabane goes from living to driving form in about 30 minutes, and only one person can transform it without any help. So far, we’re not sure when this self-sufficient caravan will make it to the market. But one thing is for sure that the future of sustainable off-grid living is bright – all thanks to renewable resources and technology.
