North Carolina State University professor Larry Silverburg recently provided an engineer’s perspective on how Santa Claus can deliver so many presents in one night.  Among Santa’s most crucial technological innovations is a nano toy-maker:

His reindeer – genetically bred to fly, balance on rooftops and see well in the dark – don’t actually pull a sleigh loaded down with toys. Instead, each house becomes Santa’s workshop as he utilizes a nano-toymaker to fabricate toys inside the children’s homes. The presents are grown on the spot, as the nano-toymaker creates – atom by atom – toys out of snow and soot, much like DNA can command the growth of organic material like tissues and body parts.
