Hitchhiking Robot Has Reached the Halfway Point on Journey

Posted August 8th, 2014 @ 11:19am by Bennett Smed

HitchBOT, the hitchhiking robot has made it halfway across Canada and is steadily progressing towards its goal of making the 3,870 mile journey across the country.

The Robot will rely on nothing but human kindness to be taken across the country as part of a social experiment, ultimately ending at an art gallery in British Columbia.

The Robot will be carried by strangers to its destination, with no interference from anyone conducting the test.
