I can't think of a sensible reason why they'd pull them from sale. I reckon they would sell many thousands of these.

Funny story, but... Are there any images of the actual, printed covers? I doubt the article was written by someone who does not know how systems like this work. No one wants to store tons of phone covers for myriads of different phone models in warehouses with images chosen randomly from the internet, even if the images were sane. From nerds viewpoint the system is obviously designed so that a particular custom phone cover is sent to be manufactured only if someone chooses to purchase one. The webpage renders the cover pictures on the fly using end users personal search data, so you'll see a butt plug phone cover only if you have been googling for such items. Or forgot to surf incognito. Or someone else in your family has...

Something doesn't quite add up here.. so this AI just randomly chooses obscure, random and also hilarious pictures, out of billions available?

This is either publicity for amazon and their new system or the programmer was having a laugh with it..


To me, something else just doesn't add up here. Hasn't Amazon heard of the term "copyright" for photographs? What makes them think it was legal to just "steal" images they found on the internet to use for phone cases, or to allow some computer program to do so in their name? As a professional photographer, I know about the hassles it becomes when someone steals one of my photographs. Amazon should be sued for stealing those pictures.

The original article in IFLScience does not seem to claim that the bot actually manufactured the covers.
