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.

Just revisiting this old thread and tried the inspirobot.
How did I live without this!!!
I couldn't imagine going through a day without such inspirational quotes such as:

"Dimensionize Discotionality"

And my personal fav:

"The human race is a constant battle against Dinosaurs"

^^^ I think um gonna have to order this shirt or at least the coffee mug.

Truly hilarious stuff. Gives me some hope that there is still some time left before the robot overlords take over...

Reminds me of InspiroBot - an AI bot dedicated to generating unlimited amounts of unique inspirational quotes for endless enrichment of human lives.

Confucius has nothing on the bot, as it thinks up timeless inspirational quotes and philosophies such as:

"Try to tell yourself that you are horrible."

"If you want to get somewhere in life you have to try to be dead."

"What does bestiality, alcoholism and time all have in common? Beauty."

"How would things be if the robots were forced to get fat?"

"Between a passion and humanity lies slavery."

"Watching pornogrophy is not for you, unless you do your best."

"Love is just a slow child trapped in a snow globe."

Don't you just feel inspired and ready for the day after that?
Give it a go

omg, I was reading some UFO thread, then I went to read this one, then as soon as I click in your link, the AI site generate this:
