Japanese engineering firm Giken Seisakusho, which specializes in tidal and flood protection systems, created the Eco Cycle Anti-Seismic Underground Bicycle Park where owners can safely park their bikes in just 8 seconds. The buried cylindrical structures are only seven meters wide, but deep enough to safely store up to 200 two-wheel vehicles each.

The Monkey Light Pro has sensors to track speed, heads-up position and rotation direction. This allows the system to create stable, full-wheel images from 15 to 65 km/h.
