Our colleagues at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL just sent us a fun video of Santa riding a fixed-wing robot and loosing a present. Luckily, the present can autonomously find its way to its destination.

Our colleagues at the LSRO at Switzerland’s EPFL have sent a great video of their robot Thymio converted into a sushi-go-round for their XMas party:

Colleagues at the AI Lab’s Robotics and Perception Group also sent a video:

Imina Technologies brings us a choir of miBot micromanipulators.

Previously featured on Robohub, General Motors and Kiva Systems feature high-tech robots pretending to be “Santa’s little helpers”.

Kiva’s video can be found here:

While the industrial robots work away, Nao has been busy with his xylophone and well wishes.

Aisoy robotics brings us this fun video showing the challenges when filming robots with “personality”.

And in case you missed the holiday video from ETHZ featuring balancing, flying and legged robots, here it is.
