Dreadnort Boats, a New Zealand-based company, has developed an amphibious survival shelter called the P.O.D. Camper. The idea for the project came about after the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011, when the company wanted to create a versatile retreat that could function as both a caravan and a boat. The P.O.D. Camper features a geodesic exterior with angular windows that create a honeycomb-like pattern, and an interior that offers 100 square feet of living space.
The structure can be customized to meet a variety of needs, from an office to a houseboat. It can be towed on a trailer like a classic caravan and, once at its destination, sits on a set of adjustable legs to lift it off the ground. For those seeking off-grid adventures, the P.O.D. can be equipped with a solar panel system for an added layer of functionality.
The P.O.D. Camper will be available for purchase later in 2023. With its unique design and adaptable features, it is sure to be a popular choice among outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers alike. The P.O.D. Camper offers a reliable and versatile shelter for any outdoor adventure, whether it be on land or water.
