The Helium Parking Concept Offers Personal Blimps for Vehicles

Like the pod system seen in the cult classic movie 'The Matrix' that held hosts of humans, the Helium Parking Concept suspends cars high above the ground in a futuristic attempt to accommodate the growing need for more places to park cars. These personal blimplike lots are quite novel and practicable, potentially freeing up tons of urban space, which is sorely needed now rather than later.

Conceived by German designer Nikolay Kolev, the Helium Parking Concept consists of a number of foldable and inflatable structures that fill up with helium to hold cars of varying sizes. These structures are then steered by an autonomous hydrogen propulsion system into an allotted spot. A cheaper proposal than certain other multileveled car parks, the Helium Parking Concept can save a lot of hassle.
