VIDEO Boston Dynamics: 4-Legged Robots Pulling Merry Christmas Sleigh

The video shows three of the company’s Spot units pulling a waving Santa in a sleigh with gifts. The company also makes BigDog, a larger quadruped robot designed for the U.S. military.


If you thought waking up on Christmas morning to above-average temperatures and no snow on the ground was scary, Boston Dynamics gives us a far more terrifying glimpse into a dystopian future where Santa’s reindeer have been replaced with (highly kickable) trotting robotic dogs.

In this (what’s the opposite of heartwarming?) holiday video we see three of Boston Dynamic’s Spot bots, the younger sibling to the company’s BigDog, pulling a sleigh. If there’s one silver lining, it’s that Santa hasn’t been replaced by ATLAS—yet! Did Futurama teach us nothing?
