Robotic Garages

Okay, remember how in I, Robot, Will Smith has his cool half robotic car, and when he went to the parking garage, he put it on a sensor, left it, and then the garage opened it up and robotically stored it? Well, for a refresher, go to 1:20 in the video below:

Well, while he all thought, hey, that looks pretty cool as something we might have in the Future, the Future is now. While current robotic garages might not be as cool looking on Will Smith's, that work, and they are spreading. Check out this video from Popular Mechanics:



Now, these might not be the most useful things in the world, it's a large investment. However, as the video mentioned, being able to fit so many in is a large bonus for owners, so I would not be surprised to see them popping up here and there over the next few decades.
