Robots to Park Your Car

February 25, 2007

Car Park

Today’s New York Times has a great article that delves into the future of automated parking garages. Automated garages take up less space, use less energy and don’t require patrons to circle the garage for 30 minutes just to find a spot.

CarsParkThese garages are already popular in Europe and Asia, but they have yet to catch on in the US. One of the first, in NYC’s Chinatown, will begin storing and dispensing cars within the next couple of months.

Looks like a special trip to Manhattan is in order. I mean, who could possibly pass up an opportunity to have their car flung about by giant robots? Now all I need is a car.
