HitchBOT began its U.S. journey in Marblehead, Massachusetts and since then has been bouncing around town, becoming a bit of a local. According to its dedicated social accounts, which update its location using a built-in GPS, HitchBOT took in a Red Sox game and even went out to sea.

Snoopy’s flying doghouse appears to be a light frame built around a remote-control quadcopter. It takes off with Snoopy on his back, nose pointed at the sky, and gives the appearance of a rather elaborate kite.
