The figures of Rudolph and Santa from the classic 1964 Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer are hitting the auction block.

They’re being sold together and they’re expected to fetch up to $250,000.

Rudolph is six inches tall, and Santa is 11. They’re made of wood, wire, cloth, and leather, while Santa’s beard is yak hair. Rudolph’s nose still lights up. And even after more than 50 years, you can still move them like the original animators did.

The figures hit the auction block next month. Find out more here.

An update released by Google allows users to search for a song by merely singing, humming or whistling the melody.

Announced at Google’s Search On event, and effective from today, users will now be able to search for a song without knowing its title or even the lyrics.

Users can access the ‘Hum To Search’ feature by opening the ‘Google Search’ app or using the Google Search Widget. Once you tap on the microphone icon, you can ask “what’s this song?” or click the ‘Search a song’ button.

Additionally, if using Google Assistant, users can ask “Hey Google, what’s this song?”.

From there, users will have a 10 – 15 second window to hum, whistle or sing the melody of a song they’re thinking of, and Google will deliver a variety of matches, beginning with the highest per cent match.

The feature is currently available on both iOS and Android.
