Developed by Stanley-Robotics, Stan is a valet parking robot set to revolutionize the way cars get parked. Currently in use at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, each Stan robot can take over 20,000 to 30,000 cars a year and manage 400 parking spaces at a time. In addition to not actually having to park the car yourself, the robots don’t require annoying things like lines, lights and pay boxes, which means costs will decrease for the owners of the lots and hopefully for the rest of the us as well. While you don’t get to interact with Stan directly, the entire parking experience is improved by his presence. You reserve a spot online and head to the garage section you’re directed to. Park your car in the secure garage spot and take the keys with you. The system also records your flight details, so Stan will pick your car up and make sure it’s in the garage waiting when you get back. Sure beats the hell out of searching for a parking spot in the long term section at the airport.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
