Hitchhiking robot lasts just two weeks in the US

Hitchbot at Niagara Falls

Hitchbot might have made it across Canada, but it appears that the US wasn’t quite so kind to this mechanical traveler. The hitchhiking robot’s American journey has ended after a mere two weeks thanks to a vandal attack in Philadelphia. While the team behind Hitchbot vows that its experiments with artificial intelligence and human interaction are "not over," it’s clear that this nomad isn’t about to resume its cross-America trek all that quickly. You’ll hear more details on August 5th — here’s hoping that this includes plans for Hitchbot to bum rides once again, whether it’s in the States or abroad.
