The Santa Claw
The Santa Claw is an enormously popular web site right now that allows visitors to remotely control a giant toy crane. Login with an account from Twitter or Facebook – or sign up with your email address. Once you log in you have to wait in line. When I tried it, there were about 300 people in front of me, so be prepared to wait. Once it is your turn, you will have a chance to try to pick up a leftover Christmas toy. As an added bonus, if you win, your prize will be shipped to you!
