Magnetic North, Arctic

Santa Claus reportedly has gone “green” with sophisticated new technologies powering his sleigh last night:

The runners are made of nano silicon, which reduces friction and increases mileage.

The sideboards have a nano skin composed of hundreds of thousands of micro-fans, capable of providing all the electricity required for the onboard computer.

Flexible solar panels on the backs of the reindeer team power an electric generator that connects to the main power source – still shrouded in secrecy after hundreds of years.

And finally, Santa himself has dropped about 50 pounds after a crash micro diet in November. Less weight in the sleigh means better mileage as well.

All in all a very good night!
