WTFRIDAYS: Robots Do the Darnedest Things

It’s 2015: Robots are everywhere. They make us food, they clean our floors, they give us hugs. They do practically everything humans can do, but are they ready to inherit the earth? Aww heck no! These goofy robots still have a long way to go before they annihilate human existence and use our bodies as batteries. In the meantime, we can enjoy some adorable robotic antics on today’s Nerdist News WTFridays!

Join Jessica Chobot as she brings you the latest robot-centric stories floatin’ ’round the ‘net this week. And we bid adieu to the most adventurous hunk of metal since The Brave Little Toaster: HitchBot the Hitchhiking Robot. Fare thee well little buddy.

Thanks for watching Nerdist News this week, don’t miss Kyle explaining real-life human-torches on Because Science, and let us know in the comments if you’d pick up HitchBot in your travels!
