Video and Slideshow of Automated Garage in New York

There are more cars than there are parking spots and it’s getting tougher and tougher to find room for them all. The AutoMotion parking garage in New York manages to squeeze 67 vehicles into the same amount of space as a conventional 24-car garage.

The way it does it is that you drive in one room, park your car on a platter, lock it and leave. This platter is then taken underground and stashed into a car-sized cubby hole. When you want your vehicle back, you call it back up, and it’ll get served up, facing the road and ready to go. The current price is just $25 per day or $400 per month, which is very competitive for New York.
