UFOs could soon be spotted floating on the ocean as cool sustainable homes. Italian boating company Jet Capsule designed what may be the most stylish way to live off the grid: an Unidentified Floating Object powered by renewable energy that provides a chance for people to travel and live on the sea.

Founders Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla said they designed the UFO home for those who desire to “live in a floating house and move slowly around the world.” With 322 square feet of space, the flying saucer-shaped home includes a main floor kitchen and living area, and lower level bathroom and bedroom. Large windows will offer stellar panoramic views – underwater.

Solar, wind, and water power propel the capsule so it functions entirely off the grid. A hydrojet on the bottom of the UFO draws power from rooftop solar panels to transport the home, while wind and water turbines provide additional power. A water generator provides drinking water via collected rain and even sea water. There’s also a vegetable garden on the rings surrounding the UFO, as well as a deck.

Maximum speed for the UFO is only four miles per hour, so the houseboat won’t win any races. At the same time, there’s little to fear from stormy weather or choppy waves; Jet Capsule designed the home with an elastic anchor system to ensure it remains stable in rough weather.

Not only is the home super sustainable, but it will likely be fairly affordable as well. The company is currently looking for investors so they can build their first prototype, and after that they hope to bring the UFOs to market with a price tag of only $200,000 – far less than your average houseboat.
