NORAD and Google track Santa; automakers design sleek sleighs
The partnership will help viewers track St. Nick’s location as he makes his way around the world on his annual gift-giving trek.
Starting at 11 p.m. PST on Thursday, viewers can find the jolly man’s position at www.noradsanta.org as well as on Google Earth, both online and on smart phones. Users can also arrange for a special someone to get a personalized phone call from Mr. Claus through www.sendacallfromsanta.com.
It’ll be a hard night’s work, so maybe this year Santa will reward himself with a gift. Maybe a sleigh from Jaguar or Aston Martin? He has more than a dozen concepts to choose from over at Digital Trends.
