HitchBot was in the process of making his way across the United States last week when somebody decided to destroy him in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was previously unknown who destroyed the robot, but now we have a lead.
Surveillance video has since surfaced that allegedly shows the man who destroyed the hitchhiking robot, and you can watch the video for yourself, since it has made its way onto to YouTube.
The robot was built by a Canadian team of scientists as something of a social experiment. The robot didn’t even make it two weeks on its United States journey, which started on July 17 in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
Based on the time code provided by the surveillance video, the attacker kicked hitchBot at 5:46 in the morning on Saturday August 1st.
