hitchBOT: The Hicthiker Robot

hitchbot-hitchhiking-robot-1

Meet hitchBOT – a robot from Port Credit, Ontario that hitchhikes across the world. Last summer he hitchhiked across Canada, and then visited Germany and the Netherlands, and six days ago, on July 17, 2015, he started his hitchhiking adventure across the USA. However, the news from its most recent travel in the United States are that the it’s been kind of slow going – only two confirmed rides since it stuck its rubber thumb out in Salem, Mass., on July 17. Stay tuned about my travels by connecting with him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And give him a ride for God’s sake!
