This Futuristic Underground Bicycle Parking Lot Is Run By Robots, And It’s Insane

Here’s some pretty sweet futuristic technology that not only makes parking your bike a whole lot easier, but also saves a ton of space in the process. This subterranean cycle storage system developed by a company called Giken, can hold 204 bikes in a well-like-hole 38 feet beneath the surface. The entire process works pretty fluently as well, all you have to do is get a membership, roll your bike up to the station, and the robotic system does the rest.
