Christmas time is almost upon us and that means serious tech news is in short supply. Fortunately, it’s also the time of year when companies kick off Christmas themed projects, and as far as we’re concerned, this is the biggest one we’ve seen so far.
As of this morning, Santa Claus is on the move, and you can see everything you could ever need to know about his progress with Google’s Santa Tracker. As technology progresses, Google gets better and better at tracking Father Christmas, and this year it is really pulling out all the stops.
The tracker includes a detailed history of where Saint Nick has been on his journey, complete with weather forecasts and a social media timeline with status updates, photos, and videos. There are also mini-games to play while keeping track of Sinterklaas, so if you’re a big fan of the man in red, you can spend all day monitoring his progress.
In case I’m not selling this enough, the sheer volume of information and data in this tracker is enough of a reason to go and check it out for yourself. It appears there will be updates at least every minute for the whole day.
Google’s Santa Tracker is available on the Play Store.
