Waymo, the separate entity that was Google’s Self-Driving Car Project, has big plans for Christmas this year. Instead of Santa’s sleigh piloted by the jolly elf himself, it’ll be controlled by Waymo’s self-driving hardware and software.
Thanks to a post on Facebook, we know in advance that the friendly skies will be friendlier Christmas Eve thanks to Santa being able to focus on other things instead of flying his sleigh. Hopefully it’ll help cut down on unfortunate reindeer crashing incidents!
You can follow Santa on Google’s Santa Tracker. There’s games and stuff to keep the kids — or kids at heart — entertained.
