The Drones Are Here, and They Brought Presents

A little cute, a little creepy.

Does anyone love their work more than the folks who work on robots? As a nod to the holiday season (and a fun way to showboat) the team at Autonomous Systems Lab has taken a few of their creations and rigged up a veritable Santa’s workshop. In this video (via Make) a neatly wrapped package is passed from a “ballbot” to a drone to a quadruped styled to resemble a reindeer–all to the jazzy strains of “Jingle Bells.”

Disrupt the stagnant elf cabal!

Skynet worrywarts, be sure to watch past the credits for the blooper reel:
