In a country like Japan where bicycles galore and remain a preferred mode to move from one point to another, a construction company called, Giken, has set up automated underground parking lots, cutting down a lot of pesky problems for commuters.

Named Eco Cycle, the system is compact enough to fit into a small space and takes just 13 seconds to store and retrieve the cycle, thus keeping pace with fast moving urban life, notes Design Boom.

The system, capable of storing 204 bicycles at a time, features high-tech surveillance tools and safety mechanism, thus eliminating the chances of theft and damage, writes Business Insider.
