With this robotic garage, retrieving your car is like using a vending machine

Created by New Jersey-based startup U-Tron, the automated garage system is designed for high-end housing developments and apartment buildings. It allows drivers to pull in off the street, get out of their cars, and then let robots sort out the rest of the parking rigamarole. To retrieve their car, users then load up an app on their smartphone and select the vehicle they want to retrieve. (So long as it belongs to them, that is!) Do this around the time you shut your front door and, with any luck, your car should be ready and waiting by the time you get to the garage.
