Japanese Underground Bicycle Parking Technology Is Genius

Older videos of Japan’s impressive underground bicycle parking have been seen on the Web before, but this new video featuring the topic is trending again now. As biking is so popular in Japan’s congested urban areas, engineers have created a very unique way to park all those bicycles: underground.

The entire process is automated. Simply roll your bike into the groove, enter your payment, and your bike is taken underground by a robot arm. To retrieve your bike, just wave your ticket. Genius!

The Driverless Cars of Greenwich

There’s been a lot of talk about self-driving cars recently. Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, and Google are all racing to debut the first car to drive completely by computer. Though they are all getting close, we are still a few years away from fully autonomous cars. 

But British scientist Tom Scott is already enjoying self-driving cars in Greenwich, London. The Transport Research Laboratory is testing Meridian Shuttles that are completely autonomous. There’s no backup driver at all. Of course, they go very slowly and only drive in pedestrian areas, but it’s a start!

Guy Invents New Microwave With Infrared And Heat Camera

Over the past few years, nearly everything we commonly use has advanced with technology. But there’s one invention that is apparently still stuck in the 70′s. The microwave. Sure, it now has a nice digital keyboard and timer, but the basic concept hasn’t changed much. 

Mark Rober has always dreamed of a smarter microwave and believes that he has finally figured it out. A microwave with an infrared and heat camera, so you can actually watch your food heat up on your smartphone while you’re in the other room. Genius!

Luna Makes Any Mattress A Smart Bed

It seems everything at home is becoming ‘smarter’ by connecting to the Internet. But Matteo Franceschetti wasn’t satisfied with his bed. Finally, he and his team have created a mattress cover called Luna that turns any bed into a smart one. 

The Luna can communicate with other smart devices to make sure your house is ready for bed, such as turning off lights, locking the door, and setting your alarm. And that’s just the beginning.
