Car Vending Machine?

Looks like it...



UPDATE: "It's not a parking garage. Vending machine isn't too far off. The picture is of Palette Town in Odaiba, Tokyo and the cars are part of the Mega Web Toyota showroom. You pick a car you want to see by pushing a button and a giant conveyor belt system rotates the vehicles around until your selection is in view. It's pretty awesome." (thanks, P.)

It's not a parking garage. Vending machine isn't too far off. The picture is of Palette Town in Odaiba, Tokyo and the cars are part of the Mega Web Toyota showroom. You pick a car you want to see by pushing a button and a giant conveyor belt system rotates the vehicles around until your selection is in view. It's pretty awesome.

I like the video on the Pimped Office Cubicles link where the office workers show how they converted their colleague's cube into a tiny house while he was on vacation.
