When people in the past imagined what the future would be like, they often thought everything would be automated. From dog-walking robots to Back To The Future's self-lacing shoes, we've always wanted technology to do more for us. While we still have to do a lot of things ourselves in 2015, we've made some strides in automated technology that feel pretty futuristic.
Look at automated parking garages for example. This relatively new technology looks like it's straight out of a sci-fi film, but it's actually being used to improve parking around the world. Automated garages don't just look cool, they also free up valuable space above ground and cut down on emissions and fuel costs for drivers.
