**** water. We don't need water. We need bike parking garages.

How often do you go outside and ride your bike?

Not very often. But I don't live in a big city, and a system like this would be great for places like chicago where everythings is in biking distance of everything else.

Why not make a tower like this? Surely you can have a compact storage facility like this.

Probly because we have cars.

But bikes don't have traffic jams. Or require fuel. Or much maintenance besides keeping the tires pressurized.

Well they do require oil to keep the chains from gaining rust.
But except from that, not much maintenance.

NHL (A big College in Leeuwarden, Holland) actually uses this.

1. Cost: a normal welded tube bike rack, a few hundred bucks, lasts a lifetime. This thing, i dont wanna know.
2. Maintenance: A welded tube bike rack almost never needs to be fixed.
3. Mechanical failures: If the machine breaks, good luck getting your bike back (lol)

I think it's a bike rental system, they are pretty common in bigger cities, but not as elaborate as this...

In that case, thats pretty clever. I've seen the large brick-and-mortar stores that do the same thing, but this is a great idea. Can just stick it somewhere in the middle of a sidewalk to rent a bike

yeah most of them just have electronic bike racks and it will automatically lock/unlock when you rent/bring back a bike.

You need to login to view this link

that's one of the services in my city, you get a membership card and swipe it at the stations

I saw an article for this not too long ago, I don't remember everything to a "t" but as far as I understand this is a parking garage for bikes. I believe it is the first of its kind and I thought it was in Japan, english lettering leads me to believe otherwise.

I could definitely see a rental company using this, but I think this is a demo video from the company that made and designed this garage.

It looks pretty asian, and I don't think there's any asian stupid enough to do that.

I assume you have to be of a certain age to be able to get it, and if you are dumb enough to actually get into it (assuming it doesn't have some sort of sensor to prevent it) then that's your problem. I can see how it might cause some rection in the US though, what with all the "sue everything that requires brainpower" going around.

Why is it more ECO friendly to use this then just parking you bike outside?

Not eco in the sense of saving fuel but eco in the sense that it saves a LOT of above ground space, something that might be in short supply in a city

They call it "ECO" because it sounds cool and futuristic. Just take a look at all the ******** with the word "nano" it is ridiculous.
