Japanese Bike Storage

In Tokyo you can park your bicycle underground, neatly, safely and automatically. You swipe your card, doors open, and you place your front wheel on a docking device that whisks your bike away into an underground storage facility that can hold up to 144 bicycles.

When you want to retrieve your bike, you swipe your card again and in ten seconds or less, your bicycle magically reappears.
