Texas Living Pods

Texas Bungalow

Found this photo attached to a NYTimes article about how the U.S. can't track whether foreign visitors have left the country.

It appears to be a spherical tent attached to a one-car shed. It's identified as a "bungalow" in the article. I find it fascinating, but a cursory Google search has not turned up any info. Eyeballing the photo, the unit can't be bigger than 150 sq-ft (probably closer to 125). There's a certain dystopian futuristic look to these pods. I wonder how much the rent is for one of these things. Also, is it unbearably hot in the Texas sun? A/C? Shower and toilet? Who can tell me about these things?
