1 post in this topic

PHILADELPHIA — A hitchhiking robot that captured the hearts of fans worldwide met its demise in the US.

The Canadian researchers who created hitchBOT as a social experiment told The Associated Press that someone in Philadelphia damaged the robot beyond repair early Saturday, ending its first American tour after about two weeks.

"Sadly, sadly it's come to an end," said Frauke Zeller, one of its co-creators.
