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!
