Cognizant Robot En Route a Canada-Wide Hike

This is no ordinary robot. It doesn’t jump. It doesn’t hoot. It does not run fast like OutRunner or have the stamina, mobility and dexterity of BigDog. Its ad hoc posture has no agile limbs or mechanical extensions, and yet it is a one of a kind robot that beats all the above at least in one sense: hitchBOT understands what you say and socializes with you. Even better it finds its way. As a matter of fact, as you are reading this, it is preparing for a 6000 km. hitchhiking experience across Canada to commence on July 27th from Nova Scotia’s NSCAD University, where it is currently in residence.
