The Japanese have a problem: Illegal bicycle parking.
The Japanese embrace technological solutions to problems.
Q.E.D.: A robotic bike-parking machine conveniently located near subway stations that stores and retrieves bicycles quickly and efficiently (and reasonably cheaply -- about 20 bucks a month ).
The Guardian has the non-embeddable video. The whole process seems vaguely Rube-Goldbergian, but that's what makes it so crazy cool.
