If you’ve ever wondered what the future of glamping looks like, look no further.

Egg-shaped pods that look a little like something out of "Star Trek" (if people on "Star Trek" really loved to road trip) called Ecocapsules provide next-level shelter for campers who want to explore the great outdoors with all the comforts of home, Lonely Planet reported.

Designed by NICE&WISE, these capsules are created to be 100 percent self-sufficient living spaces, even in remote locations.

Suddenly all the tricked-out camping gear in the world seems to fall flat against these pods.

According to Lonely Planet, the pods are powered entirely by solar panels and 750-watt retractable wind turbines, and their shape is optimized to collect rainwater to be filtered for drinking and cleaning. They have 7.8 inch walls and are good in the heat or cold, withstanding temperatures between 14 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

But besides being power efficient, they’re also modern, chic, and very comfortable looking on the inside too. Each pod comes with a bed that can be folded out to fit two people, a workspace, kitchenette, toilet, shower, and lots of storage. Overall, the pod gives you 68 square feet of space, according to Mashable.

Naturally, this on-the-go luxury comes at a high price. Each pod costs $89,000 (€79,900), excluding shipping costs. For more information on Ecocapsules or to make a purchase, visit the company's website.
