Santa's high tech sleigh by GE -- Click above to check out the specs

General Motors gave Santa a sleigh with OnStar and a reindeer monitor. General Electric must have seen that video and said, "Hold on a second," because they created a sleigh for the big red man with icephobic coatings, self-powered OLED lighting, ceramic matrix composite blades, GE sodium batteries, Trip Optimizer, and a 500GB holographic disc that holds 200 DVDs worth of information.

Santa's suit gets in on the Iron Man act, too, with a wearable RFID sensor hidden in the fringed getup as well as a wireless medical sensor, because Mr. Kringle's Body Mass Index is out of control. And since elves are notorious worriers, they get Asset Intelligence Tracking Tech to keep Santa on the radar and out of Vegas.

But for all that, GE didn't include a blue button so the kiddies could keep track of him...

      Anyone else freaked out by the front end of this thing, with it's toothy grille and evil red eyes? Distant cousin of Charlie the Choo-Choo, perhaps?

      I think Santa should have an Audi V10 TDI sleigh he needs the torques.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Nah, with all those batteries, what it needs is a flux capacitor to store all those jigawatts.

      Um, where are the reindeer rope attachment hooks?
        • 5 Years Ago
        No hooks availiable anywhere on the planet. Toyota consficated them all to hold their floormats in place.

      "and a 500GB holographic disc that holds 200 DVDs worth of information."

      One DVD: 4.70 GB
      200 DVDs: 940 GB

      940 GB > 500 GB

      Mr. Kringle's out of control BMI.... you guys crack me up.

      Why would Santa settle for a lesser sleigh than the one he already has? The reindeer have always been for show. Santa's sleigh has an infinite improbability drive. How else can he be everywhere at once, and deliver so many presents so quickly? It also explains where that Russian car company got so much whale penis leather for their cars. Kind of easy when you have sperm whales falling from the sky...
