Why dont the garages just park over the cars? Would be a lot easier.

yea these are pretty cool, I saw some of the rotating kind when I was in japan.
my friend had his car stuck on the top level one time, so they had to rotate
through a whole bunch of cars, it took like 5 min. I was still impressed but
he seemed a bit put off that his was put on top. :-\

The think about the software company and licensing....that's a load of BS
another one of the many reasons gpl is a better than proprietary in the
public (E.G. non military) domain

Clarke at Robotic Parking Systems said demand for robotic parking is booming in the country after long lagging behind other developed countries.

for those who saw Tokyo Drift (that car racing moving where the cars 'drift' around in Japan), they had a robot garage in it for a good like 2 minutes of footage.

it really doesnt matter if you live in a developed country . . . in most cases robot garages are more expensive per parking space than regular garages . . . only when land is super crazy expensive, such as in tokyo, or NY, will it be cheaper than the traditional parking garage (because it requires less land) . . .
