Hitchbot brutally slain in Philadelphia …

July 27, 2014 – August 2, 2015

The loveable (?) (OK, likeable) hitchhiking robot Hitchbot met his brutal demise whilst sitting on a public bench in Philadelphia, US of A – the City of Brotherly Love. Love, evidently not extended to mechanical entities – even as harmless as Hitchbot.

hitchBOT | A robot exploring the world\

“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.”
