    depending on kindness of strangers meets its demise in Philadelphia

    On July 17, a smiling and seemingly harmless robot named HitchBOT set out to accomplish its dream—roadtripping across America through the kindness of strangers. (...)

    Tragically, about two weeks later, little HitchBOT learned a rough life lesson. According to the Associated Press, the bot met its demise in Philadelphia, home of sports fans who notoriously have thrown batteries at opposing players or snowballs at Santa Claus.

    Surprised that it lasted two weeks on the East Coast.

    That was a senseless piece of destruction, and shame on the person(s) who did this. The growing problem in America is a total loss of respect for others property. Thanks for posting this.

    That was my thought. This sort of thing happens to actual people all the time out there.
