Tiny bicycle-towed house is self-sufficient

Why tow around a bus-sized motorhome when you can create a 100-pound trailer that has nearly everything you need? Meet a guy named Paul, creator of this bicycle-towed camper with a wind turbine on top, a place he called home at the Burning Man project for a week.

He cooks his meals in a solar oven, and heats up water for showers and kitchen use with a solar water heating system. There's a urinal funnel on the outside, but unfortunately there's no facilities for taking care of number two. Guess he just had to squat for that. Overall, this is as off-the-grid as you can get.

Paul built this micro house as a design study, wondering what would happen if Swine Flu resulted in an apocalypse that required him to be entirely self-sufficient. Check out the gallery below to peruse his Spartan accommodations, and don't miss our favorite feature, the bubble on the end where he lays his head at night, giving him a clear view of the stars.
