Santa spends $227 billion on technology to manage Christmas

Santa’s workshop boasts a highly-systematic, technologically-advanced, and expensive operation worth over $227-Billion, or so we would imagine in this infographic:

The infographic gathers ten already existing, super advanced technologies, that FinancesOnline.com believe Santa would need to use to make the seemingly impossible logistics of Christmas gift-giving a success.   It covers all aspects of Santa’s operations:

  • $37-billion-worth Amazon Drones or Gift-O-Copters will distribute the right gift to the right child
  • Santa’s Elves can go high-tech with advanced (and expensive!) Exoskeletons that will boost their productivity to the max!
  • 18 Chinese Supercomputers, worth $800-million each, will enable Santa to read billions of gift requests from kids around the world in an instant
  • To keep track of who’s good or bad, the whole operation will need a $12-billion Exabyte Data Storage hub — now that’s a long naughty list!

It kind of reminds me of the BBC trailer with Alan Sugar this year:

A tough job, but Santa has to do it!

Merry Christmas everyone.

See you in January.
