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 If there’s one silver lining, it’s that Santa hasn’t been replaced by ATLAS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?
