Google-owned Robotics firm Boston Dynamics’ creepy video leaves holiday revelers

Amid the Christmas and New Year holiday season, Google-owned engineering firm Boston Dynamics, a robotics company, has done something unpleasant. A video posted by the company on the internet with good intentions has left holiday revelers somewhat distasted. In the video, a headless mechanical robotic reindeer is shown pulling a sleigh while a female Santa aboard wishes viewers “Happy Holidays". But the headless reindeer only succeeded in creeping the video out of the Internet.

Though the engineering firm had good intentions while preparing the video, the result was otherwise.

The video invited a series of tweets. “Remember when you asked, ‘Why doesn’t someone creep me out with headless robotic reindeer?’ Boston Dynamics heard you:” posted Richard Gaskin. "Happy creepy robot reindeer holidays", tweeted user AD.

Founded in 1992, Boston Dynamics shot to limelight in 2005 with their BigDog style bot designed for DARPA. The company, bought by Google X in December of 2013, has created its own version of robot reindeer. Apart from reindeer, the company also develops “cheetahs”, which have come to be known as the fastest-legged robots, robot dogs and sand fleas.
