According to the Belfast Telegraph, the artist collective !Mediengruppe Bitnik managed to get a robot arrested for buying drugs on the darknet.
The group created a robot called, Random Darknet Shopper and give it $100 in bitcoins each week to buy whatever it wanted on the darknet and have it delivered to their exhibition at Kunst Halle St. Gallen, Switzerland.
Here’s what the robot purchased:
A Hungarian passport, a baseball cap fixed with a hidden camera, fake Diesel jeans, a stash can, 200 Chesterfield cigarettes and 120mg of MDMA in the form of 10 yellow pills.
Now that’s a fucking party robot if there ever was one!
At the end of the exhibit in January, the robot and everything it bought were confiscated by the Swedish police. Three months later, the robot and everything except the ecstasy pills were returned.
Now that the robot is free, it can finally get back to partying hard!
