Canadian Hitchbot

EZ-Robot team, have you guys seen or heard of HitchBot?

http://www.roboticstrends.com/research_academics/article/hitchbot_robot_tries_to_hitchhike_across_canada/?utm_source=RoboTrendsWeekly&utm_medium=email

Looks like it's going to start its hitch hiking adventure July 27th, 2014

If you guys are able to give Hitchbot a ride back to the HQ for a party or something I'm sure Hitchbot would enjoy meeting some other Canadian robots. ;)

Or maybe someone will pick him up and install an EZB4 in him and make him smarter.

If this was tried in the USA the poor thing would probably end up in parts and pieces and assimilated into used cars and stereo equipment. *eek*
