O Canada! Hitchhiking Robot Reaches Halfway Point



HitchBOT, the hitch-hiking robot, is now at the halfway point in its journey across Canada. For its 3,870-mile journey, the talking robot will rely solely on the kindness of human strangers, like those below.

The journey is part of a social experiment to see if it can arrive in one piece at an art gallery in Victoria, British Columbia.

ABOVE: HitchBOT waits for a ride on the Trans-Canada Highway on Aug. 5.



Belgian tourists Kim Van Aerde, left, and Seb Leeson pose with their hitchhiker, HitchBOT, in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario on Aug. 5. The two will drive the robot west along the Trans-Canada Highway.
