Ross Lovegrove's Solar-Powered Alpine Capsule

The Alpine Capsule is an 8-meter wide structure with a double-glass skin that is covered with a special reflective coating. The coating meant to reflect the structure's surroundings and blend in with the environment. The capsule is straight out of a sci-fi novel and looks more like a bead of mercury than an alpine retreat, but Lovegrove is by no means traditional.

Nice. Now if only it could fit inside that secret tunnel in London . . .
