Where Robots Park Your Bike

My entire time in Japan consists of sitting in the Tokyo airport for two hours coming home from the Maldives, so most of the nation is unknown to me by experience and I’m still completely gobsmacked and charmed by some of the cultural quirks and ingenius applications of technology that the Japanese have developed. Take, for example, the automatic bike garage. It would probably be cheaper and more space efficient to pay someone to watch over bikes in a little storeroom, but it wouldn’t be anywhere near as cool, Matrix-y, or, well, Japanese.
