Jupe’s ‘Urban Escape Pod’ Was Designed By Former SpaceX & Tesla Employees

Dec 22, 2020

Even during a pandemic lockdown, urban living can get a bit crowded and claustrophobic. However, we’re not all lucky enough to have a penthouse in the city and a full-sized cabin upstate for when we need to unplug. But that kind of lifestyle isn’t entirely out of reach, thanks to the efforts of the folks behind the Jupe prefab shelter you see here.

This flat-packed mini-cabin is actually the work of former employees from SpaceX, Tesla, and Airbnb and was, interestingly, inspired by the cosmos — which is likely why it resembles a spaceship both inside and out. Standing 11′ high and boasting 111 sqft of usable space, the structure is built on an illuminated aluminum chassis, has Baltic birch wood flooring (which can open up into 38.1 cubic feet of storage space), a solar array to charge up its electrical system (which includes internal 3-prong and USB outlets), dimmable LED internal lighting, and it even has its own WiFi network. Best of all, the structure can be erected anywhere in hours. Preorder your own Jupe starting at $17,500 with a $99 deposit and a Spring 2021 estimated delivery.

Purchase: $17,500+
