Raise your hand if you think Santa uses magic to find the just right gift for every boy and girl? If you thought this, as I did, you will be amazed to learn that there is new evidence to suggest that it looks like magic but is in fact advanced technology that allows him to create scientific tools to help him get his job done.
Examples of these tools are: Terahertz wave radiation scanner, metamaterials that allow for lightbending, heads-up display glasses, and much more. Although some of these gadgets are being tested in labs currently, most of Santa’s tools are hundreds of years more advanced that what we have access to today!
You can listen to Gregory Mone, editor for Popular Science, share these tools on NPR: Santa Claus Relies On Robots, Gadgetry Many more examples are shared in Mone’s new book, The Truth About Santa: Wormholes, Robots, and What Really Happens on Christmas Eve.
