I wonder how long it'll take for this application of technology to finally pay for itself.

In japan, about two weeks.

Also note similar systems already exists for cars and large-scale backup/retrieval systems. A local video library here in Montreal also use a similar system for on-demand on-site DVD/laser disk access. These system are all the same. Only the medium change.

Not knowing Japanese, I'd say this is a report of the devastating bike shortage in Japan -- they only have this one bike good enough to fill the whole parking space.

The bikes outside... Not good enough.

I like the way the machine first eats the bike like a moray eel coming out of its hole.
