Hitchhiking Robot Travelling The World, Journey Comes To an end

resizedimageHitchBOT’s tour has come to it’s final journey in Philadelphia on Thursday. The child-sized robot had a good run across Canada and some parts of Europe has been sadly vandalized and the damage is beyond repair, this is according to it’s creators. It was just over two weeks where he got to visit sites in Boston, Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and New York City. There will now be a lot of sad fans and according to it’s creators the experiment is not quite over.

‘according to a statement from the team monitoring the robot’s travels’.

For now we will focus on the question “what can be learned from this?” and explore future adventures for robots and humans.

Before this unfortunate incident, the robot was expected to travel cross-country.

It was immobile on its own, relying on the kindness of strangers. Those who picked it up often passed it to other travelers or left it where others might notice it.

The journey started on July 17, 2015, in Marblehead, Massachusetts, onto the Boston area and even took in a Red Sox game.

The creators were sent an image of the vandalized robot Saturday but could not track its location because its battery was dead, according to The Associated Press.

“Sometimes bad things happen to good robots,” the statement said.

Also, the robot had been designed as a talking travel companion, throwing out random factoids.

“We want to see what people do with this kind of technology when we leave it up to them,” Frauke Zeller, one of the creators and an assistant professor in professional communication at Toronto’s Ryerson University, told the AP. “It’s an art project in the wild — it invites people to participate.”

The robot, wearing yellow wellies, attended a wedding in Germany, had its portrait painted in the Netherlands and was making big plans for its cross-country tour of the U.S., including taking in some jazz in New Orleans and snapping a selfie with the Hollywood sign. The creators of the robot did not say whether the machine would try to complete its bucket list in the U.S., but promised that they would keep the project alive.

“We know that many of hitchBOT’s fans will be disappointed, but we want them to be assured that this great experiment is not over,” they said in a statement.

Eminem, Mocked Celebrities Including Caitlyn Jenner In Harsh Freestyle Rap

Eminem, real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III, and a best-selling artist seems to have been a bit of fouled mouth as he mocked Caitlyn Jenner in shock freestyle rap. The rapper is known for his controversial rap music, often mocking various celebrities, but has he taken a step to far by his ridiculing of transgender star Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, a retired American athlete known for winning the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics. Although Jenner is getting a lot of support it seems as if not from Eminem, in a

freestyle rap which aired on a US radio show on Thursday evening.

In the rap, 42-year-old Eminem speaks to Caitlyn saying:

‘Heat seeking missile duck, demented sick see who gives a f**k. I invented p**** and this a true statement, I see the b**ch in you, Caitlyn,’ adding:
‘I keep the pistol tucked like Bruce Jenner’s d**k. No disrespect though not at all, no pun intended that took a lot of balls.’

Jenner, sixty-five just recently came out with the shocking news about gender transition, keeping her/his feelings secret for several years.

She revealed:

‘If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life’.’

The rap mocks other celebrities, which include, actress Angelina Jolie, singer Rita Ora and rapper Azealia Banks.

Despite his strong words, Eminem claimed that it was all meaningless.

‘The rhyme by the way, it’s all in fun. I just say s*** to say it. I don’t even know if there’s anything,’ admitted Marshall, adding:
‘It’s very rarely, very rarely personal. Put it this way, if it was ever personal, someone would know it.’

jimmy fallon’s Ring Finger Story Is Not One For The Squeamish

Jimmy Fallon‘s finger was almost amputated. The Television host finger had been in bad shape following a fall over and suffered from ‘ring avulsion’ The Bay Ridge, Brooklyn native had no choice to take a two week hiatus from his The Tonight Show spot because he had to spend ten days in the ICU. He has explained what the story is behind the bandage around his ring finger,

and it’s not one for the squeamish.

The star was forced to take a break from The Tonight Show after he suffered a significant hand injury in which he nearly lost a finger after falling over in his kitchen.

“I tripped and fell, and I caught my fall, and I’m getting up and my finger is sideways,” he told the audience on his return to the show. “It looked fake – it looked like a cheap horror movie where you see a broken finger,” he added.

Fallon explained that he had suffered from “ring avulsion”, caused by his ring becoming caught on a counter top in his kitchen as he fell over. He was sent to a specialist at Bellevue hospital in New York, where he underwent six hours of micro surgery.

A doctor had to take a vein from his foot and put it inside his finger in order to save the digit – though in many cases of this kind, the finger would have simply been amputated, Fallon told the audience.

“I won’t get the feeling back for eight weeks,” Fallon said, pointing at his bandaged hand, explaining that he had spent 10 days after the surgery recovering in the intensive care unit.

But despite his ordeal, Fallon was able to joke about the experience.

“I should say the fall was funny – I’m a comedian so I have to fall funny,” he said, adding that he had already drawn up plans for a new kind of ring.

He ended the segment thanking the “angels” that had looked after him at the hospital.

Nintendo Announces Sad News Satoru Iwata Dies

Satoru Iwata has died, such a huge loss, he was just fifty-five years old. The Japanese businessman and programmer was the fourth president and CEO of Nintendo. The Sapporo, Japan native’s death had been announced by Nintendo that he died on July 11, 2015.

The short statement attributes his untimely death to a bile duct growth, a rare form of cancer that is difficult to catch early on. Iwata recently missed this year’s E3 due to health concerns relating to the growth, which he attempted to have surgically removed.

His death is not just felt by Nintendo but also the entire industry, his work includes Earthbound and Kirby and he,

oversaw the company’s extremely successful transition from playing card manufacturer to video game maker.

Iwata’s tenure oversaw huge successes for Nintendo like explosive sales of the DS and the Wii, but also a few hardships like the underperforming GameCube and Wii U. But through it all, Iwata has been a beloved figure in the gaming industry, known for his warmth and accessibility despite occupying such a powerful position.

In my opinion, it is extremely a huge loss, knowing that he had future plans for other things, such sad day for Nintendo.

Iwata also had interests in video creation and in his High School days he started creating video games, he majored in computer science, he did freelance work as a programmer for HAL Laboratory, Inc.,

a game developer that often collaborated closely with Nintendo.

‘He’s been flaunting his romance with Marnie in Jess’s face on social media and now he’s done this. She’s been saying: ‘Good luck to him!’ laughing her head off, telling friends it’s never going to last and that Ricky doesn’t have a clue what he wants,’ says our source.

‘At first Jess was a bit shocked by the news ­ after all, Ricky had told Jess he was in love with her and wanted to marry her and have kids ­ and look how that turned out. Just seven months later, he’s telling someone else the same thing. Jess knows that she and Ricky weren’t right, but it’s still a pretty cruel blow that he’s  moved on so quickly.’

Rayment supposedly aked the question last month when in the Geordie Shore house and Marnie,

 ‘immediately said yes’, according to friends of the couple.
