Hitchbot the Hitchhiking Robot set to Travel Across Canada

His name is Hitchbot, and he’s equipped with a GPS, 3G wireless connectivity, a camera, and a built-in child booster seat, he will soon try to catch rides all the way across Canada.

Hitchbot will be on his own starting July 27th, he will take pictures and post videos of his journeys across Canada. Hitchbot is immobile with the exception of his hitchhiking arm. I am really interested to see how this experiment goes.
