Robot To Hitchhike Across Canada


Just when we thought we’d seen it all!

HitchBOT – the hitchhiking robot will be traveling across Canada in the month of July (starting on the 27th).

The pool-noodle and garden glove clad robot will have to rely on the kindness of the travelers it meets on its journey from coast to coast. HitchBOT is expected to eventually make it to Victoria.

According to the robot’s creator, Dr. Frauke Zeller – the robot may not be a quiet passenger. It enjoys electronic music, trivia, and has hopes of making many friends.

Hitchhikers with a flair for sing-a-longs? – We can’t help but to be reminded of the Dumb and Dumber hitchhiking scene!

Do you think you’d pick up the HitchBOT?
