A rather creative group of mechanical engineering students at the University of Toledo have taken on a unique task: parallel parking. We all know that Lexus has made headlines with the LS460 and the Advanced Parking Guidance System, but these guys have designed a relatively simple alternative that doesn't require a Master's degree to operate.

The basic design is a simple hydraulic system that lifts the rear of the vehicle and slides it sideways into the spot. You really have to see it to realize how simple and effective it is...the video tells the rest.

Thanks to Martijn for the tip!
