Tokyo's Quake-Proof Underground Storage Cylinder re: bicycle parking


"Tokyo's underground bicycle storage system looks more like an elaborate
 mechanism from a sci-fi movie than a parking lot for cycles. Put into motion
with a single push of a button, the ECO Cycle Anti-Seismic Underground
 Bicycle Park, built by Japanese engineering firm Giken Seisakusho Co. LTD
 is just seven meters wide, but it's deep enough to store 144 bicycles."

As described on Giken's website, or a blog article which links to this YouTube clip.
