We've likely all daydreamed about where we'd live if money were no object. For me, isolated mountaintops haven't yet topped the list. That may well change, however, now that I've seen LEAP Factory's eco-friendly alpine pods. The pods were designed to support trekking and skiing expeditions, but they still look like a spectacular place to spent some time (even if just to admire the views). Each pod is customizable, built off site, and airlifted into place by helicopter. They're also completely self-sufficient — the photovoltaic film on top provides all the necessary energy. Finally, each pod is made of ecologically certified materials and is designed to leave no footprint — when it's time to move, the pod is just lifted away again.
For more about the pods, see LEAP Factory.
