I can’t WAIT for these to come to the US!
A Bikedispenser is a fully automated bicycle rental station. This means that at locations where you would like to have or use a bike such as a train station, transportation hub or parking garage, you can rent a bike very easily, quickly and simply. For architects or urban planners, the Bikedispenser meets the need to store a substantial number of bikes (50-100) in a compact and safe environment. The technology of the Bikedispenser also enables underground installation upon specification.

A rental is about $4 for every 20 hour period, so for the choice rider who only needs a bike for an hour, that’s only 20 cents!
Colleges might find this technology useful for their bike rental programs.
