Meet hitchBOT, the hitchhiking robot attempting to thumb rides from Boston to San Francisco. The robot is immobile, and by the looks of it, is really more of scarecrow with access to Twitter and Instagram. Or something purchased from the set of a 1950s sci-fi movie with a GPS device slapped on it. While many engineers attempt to develop robots that imitate human gait and movement, this robot was given yellow boots and gloves in case it rains or it has to wash dishes in exchange for rides.
