Japan Bicycle Parking Technology

Clever urban bike storage solution in Japan demonstrates the benefits of some forward thinking and a lot of complicated machinery. Called the ECO-Cycle, it’s an ingenious way of offering bicycle storage to the masses. All the cyclist has to do is touch his membership card on a reader and insert his bike into the cubicle. The storage system then transports the bike up to 11 meters underground, where it is held in one of the 204 bike racks.
