And then the machine malfunctions.

No idea why, but it made me think of this.

now, what if the bicycle got stuck or the power plug got unplugged?

It would be the same thing as having your bike nicked.

That's downright terrifying.

I think the scary thing is that there are that many people in one area, thats how a zombie apocalypse happens.

They have the same sort of thing in Japan but for cars. Its like a car elevator and you push the number and it rotates the cars to yours.
User avatar #58 to #30 - howunexpected (07/10/2013) [-]
The biggest one is in Germany.
Its in the Volkswagen Autostadt. The AutoTürme are silos that house newly built Volkswagen vehicles.
There are two of them.

why isn't this everywhere?
User avatar #48 to #29 - rplix (07/10/2013) [-]
It is probably very expensive to make, especially in the US.

Looks like it goes down around 30-50 feet. This could interfere with pipelines underground. Also people in America don't use bikes as often as people in Asian countries.

Except in the major metropolitan areas. If it weren't for the smog, New Yorkers would be some of the healthiest people in the world, they walk and bike everywhere.
User avatar #51 to #49 - rplix (07/10/2013) [-]
But especially in metro areas, there are a bunch of things underground that could get in the way of such a structure.
User avatar #52 to #51 - JesuschristofAZ (07/10/2013) [-]
Oh certainly, especially the subways. I was just saying if there is a portion of the U.S. that can touch the Asians in terms of alternatives to vehicles and mass transit, it's New York.
User avatar #53 to #52 - rplix (07/10/2013) [-]
Very true.

If even 1/5 of people who drive switched to biking there would be a notable difference.

I just started driving recently. Today I bought a new bike tire and told my mom when the school year starts and it cools down, I'll just bike to school. She said "Why bike, the school is close. Why not drive?" and I said exactly, the school is close. Why waste precious gas instead of biking three miles to school? The only thing I need my car for is work, because I work the late shift and can't bike home in the dark.
User avatar #56 to #55 - rplix (07/10/2013) [-]
Yeah three miles in nothing.

I know kids at my old high school that lived across the street and would drive.

Because it'd expensive as hell to build and run compared to a metal rack, and also it'd take up a lot of underground space that water pipes, wiring and subway systems already take up.
User avatar #82 to #54 - iftheshoefits (07/10/2013) [-]
I figured, the question was rhetorical
#83 to #82 - noschool (07/10/2013) [-]
sorry, it's hard to tell when somebody's being sarcastic on the internet.
User avatar #84 to #83 - iftheshoefits (07/10/2013) [-]
I'll make a point to clarify next time

Good, and then you will have to wait for the 15 other people to get their bike down there, and then you will have to wait again to get it up. Super expensive, and prone to damage.

Don't overdo something as simple as parking bikes. These bikes down there will not fit much space up on the ground anyways
User avatar #172 to #160 - lesrin (07/10/2013) [-]
i believe the reason behind this is that, building roads and all sorts of things are above ground, meaning the space is taken, although many things do not take space underground meaning you can create this right below a road so that you can fit for into a small space city wise
#174 to #172 - jvcjvc (07/10/2013) [-]
I understand your point, but would rather see parking-racks for bikes on the ground. That, or people living in the city should have bikes that are capable of folding together.

The idea is good with this parking system, but the design is horrible. lets say this thing can hold 100 bikes. and costs several million dollars to construct, Then in order to have a sufficient amount of bikes stored, they would have to make thousands of these. + having a horrible maintenance problem.

Finding space in the ground to constuct something like this is not easy in any way. Building-foundations and what they are constucted upon has ratain stability, water, heating and sewer lines can be cut, electric-grid will be reorganised.

It would be nice to make in areas that are planned with new construction, but creating thousands of these in the rock-hard soil of Manhattan would be impossible.
