You better watch out,

You better not cry,

You better not shout in fear,

Boston Dynamics is showing you why,

Robot Reindeer are here!



Boston Dynamics, the makers of some of the most advanced robots on Earth, uploaded this seemingly-innocent Holiday video. Astute Futurama viewers are aware that we are now one-step closer to the evil that is Robot Santa.



Have fun staying inside and hiding from Robot Santa this Christmas Eve (just in case)!

Pixar technical director Alonso Martinez made this adorable little robot that's sure to give you the awwws. Described as a "desk companion," Mira is capable of tracking faces in order to play a game of peek-a-boo with the user. According to Martinez, 

Mira is a desk companion that makes your life better one smile at a time. This project explores human robot interactivity and emotional intelligence. Currently Mira uses face tracking to interact with the users and loves playing the game “peek-a-boo”. As her understanding of the world and people's emotions get richer so will her ability to interact with people in a more meaningful way.

When Mira sees you during a game of peek-a-boo, she wobbles and chirps with excitement, which surely makes long days stuck at a desk easier. There's no word on whether or not Martinez plans to bring Mira to the consumer market, but if he does, you can bet I'll be first in line to buy one.
