Giant Subterranean Bicycle Parking Lot (Video)


Check out this amazing new bicycle parking lot near Kasai Station in Tokyo. It houses up to 9,400 bicycles in a giant subterranean vault 15 meters deep. You put your bike on a platform; seconds later, an elevator opens up and a robotic arm jumps out and pulls your bicycle in, taking it down into the lot’s cylindrical dungeon. It looks like it would be a hassle and a total waste of time, but the reporter timed the whole operation, and it took only 23 seconds for the machine to identify, collect, and return his bicycle.
