Hitchhiking robot completes its journey across Canada

A small robot made of a beer cooler and pool toys has completed its mammoth hitchhiking journey across Canada.

On Saturday "hitchBOT" a "trivia-loving, wellington-wearing, tweeting robot" tweeted a picture of itself making its way to Victoria on Vancouver Island, Canada's most westerly point.

The robot began its epic journey over 3,700 miles away in Nova Scotia. An artists center in Victoria will become its permanent home after a short jaunt to Seattle and a visit to the First Nations community.
