(WXYZ) - The robot set to hitchhike its way across Canada is apparently off to a good start.
You may remember Hitchbot created by professors at McMaster University.
It's part of a social experiment to see if people will be generous enough to stop and pick the bot up.
Even David Harris-Smith, co-creator of the robot, admits the whole idea is a bit far fetched.
Hitchbot hit the street in Halifax yesterday.
He was only on the side of the road for two minutes before someone gave him a ride.
