A video of a Japanese bicycle retrieving system has had 111,000 views on YouTube in the last few days and 66 blogs have embedded it (make that 67).

Remember the door retrieval system in Monsters Inc? This is the real life version…but for bikes. It’s based at Tokyo’s Kasai train station. The system can store 9400 bikes and in the video a TV presenter is shown retrieving his machine in just 23 seconds.



The video is in at number nine in the Video Viral Chart, and will likely go higher.
