VIDEO RELEASED=> Here’s the Jerk Who Decapitated hitchBOT the Hitchhiking Robot in Philadelphia
HitchBOT, the hitchhiking robot, traveled coast to coast across Canada last year.
The trivia-loving, wellington-wearing, tweeting robot made it across Canada last summer.
But HitchBOT’s trek across the US lasted just two weeks.
The robot was found decapitated in Philadelphia.
When hitchBOT the hitchhiking robot started his journey in Boston two weeks ago he wanted to see the entire country. Unfortunately, he never made it out of the Northeast. The researchers who built hitchBOT announced today that they need to stop the experiment because hitchBOT was vandalized in Philadelphia.
From the researchers who built hitchBOT:
hitchBOT’s trip came to an end last night in Philadelphia after having spent a little over two weeks hitchhiking and visiting sites in Boston, Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and New York City. Unfortunately, hitchBOT was vandalized overnight in Philadelphia; sometimes bad things happen to good robots. We know that many of hitchBOT’s fans will be disappointed, but we want them to be assured that this great experiment is not over. For now we will focus on the question “what can be learned from this?” and explore future adventures for robots and humans.
Now there’s video of hithBOT’s final minutes of his trek across America.
The robot was decapitated by some jerk in Philly.
