A hitchhiking robotic aiming to make its method throughout the U.S. discovered the hard way that you cannot constantly depend upon the kindness of strangers.
Only 300 miles into its trip from sea to shining sea, hitchBOT was found decapitated in Philadelphia.
HitchBOT was developed by a group of communications researchers from Ontario and was designed to be a talking travel companion. The bot was immobile on its own and count on complete strangers to pick it up and pass it along to other tourists or leave it in a place others might discover.
“We want to see what individuals do with this kind of technology when we leave it approximately them,” Frauke Zeller, one of the developers, informed the AP. “It’s an art project in the wild– it invites individuals to participate.”
Last year the bot successfully hitchhiked throughout Canada in 26 days.
Things did not work out so well this time around. HitchBOT was discovered beaten to a pulp on Saturday outside the City of Brotherly Love, simply two weeks into its cross-country journey from Marblehead, Mass., to San Francisco.
“We understand that numerous of hitchBOT’s fans will be disappointed, however we want them to be guaranteed that this excellent experiment is not over,” the robot’s creators stated in a statement.
