It's the time of year when Santa needs to train for his annual flight and it appears Saint Nick saw our recent posting on CISR's Haptically-Enabled Universal Motion Simulator (UMS). Fortunately, the roboticists at CISR were feeling in the Christmas spirit and agreed to help Santa get into shape. Kyle Nelson writes,
In preparation for Christmas this year Santa has made the trip down-under for some flight training! Santa tested his skills on the new CISR Haptically-Enabled Universal Motion Simulator (UMS) to make sure that he can deliver all of his presents on time this Christmas Eve. We have a feeling Santa's reindeer will be flying super-fast this year, hope you've been good!
