Boston Dynamics create robot reindeer powered Santa sleigh

Boston Dynamics has decided to put their scary looking robots to good use and created a robot-powered reindeer version of Santa's sleigh.

One would be tempted to change the usual "Rudolph, the red nose reindeer" into "Rudolph, the robot reindeer"... But at least it would be easier to explain young children why Santa's reindeer don't get tired by delivering Christmas gifts all over the world (at least, not while the battery lasts.)

In any case, one can always wish that these sort of robots would be used exclusively for Christmas celebrations, instead of being used for military purposes - though, as usual, these are only a tool to transport stuff around, which don't make it "bad" just because they're used in situations we'd like to see gone from our world.

Well, it's up to each and every one of us to do his/her little bit in order to make the world a better place. If there's a lot we cannot change or fix directly, there are also lots of small things we can do; so, let's focus on that and make 2016 a little bit better for those around us.
