An Amazon AI bot that was created to design smartphone cases has gone delightfully and hilariously wrong.
It is supposed to generate phone cases based on popular image searches, but unfortunately the bot seems to have gone awry and is now designing some bizarre phone cases, largely of a medical theme.
As a result, the phone cases from ‘My Handy Design’ are pretty ridiculous. Some of the hot favorites include “vaginal discomfort” and “adult diaper worn by old man with a crutch.”
The Amazon bot has generated thousands of phone cases, much to the bewilderment of shoppers. One reviewer, commenting on a phone case of someone preparing heroin for injection, commented, “Seriously? Come on!! This is ridiculous. You should be ashamed to offer this product. Trying to profit on the pain of others. And shame on Amazon for allowing this.”
At some point, the bot seems to have started to focus on medical search terms, as among the featured photos are endoscopes and several different kinds of foot conditions.
The out-of-control algorithm currently lists over 31,000 products on Amazon, the quality of which varies wildly. Take a look at some of them below.
