Some of the most amazing changes and improvements in the world where result of advancement in technology. Through the development of computers and the internet, people today can now communicate with each other even if they are miles apart. The World Wide Web has become another world wherein people virtually do almost everything they do in the real world like doing business transactions, banking, managing a business, earning money, and of course, shopping.

One of the most recent inventions that focus on the internet is the Random Darknet Shopper – an internet bot designed to purchase random items from the deep web.

The online shopping bot is developed by 2 Swiss artists. The artists developed the automated bot to explore the deep web landscape. The deep web can be considered as an unexplored area of the World Wide Web mainly because this is the market believed to be used for dubious transactions and items, much like the black market. According to experts, illegal items like weapons and drugs are what usually being negotiated and sold in the deep web since conventional search engines usually cannot access these areas of the web plus users cannot be traced making it perfect for doing dubious transactions.

The automated online bot is given a weekly budget of $100 in Bitcoins. The items randomly purchased by the Random Darkent Shopper will be displayed in a public exhibition. Every week, the bot will purchase an item from the deep web and items will be added to the exhibition space.

The first purchase made by the shopping bot is a fake Lacoste shirt being sold by a seller in Thailand. The item cost $34 worth of Bitcoins. The next order made by the bot was a Bitcoin miner, a computer hardware developed to search the web for Bitcoin currency which cost $25 worth of Bitcoins. The third purchase made by the automated bot is a box of firecrackers listed by the seller as a box of triangle crackers under the weapons category.

According to the artists, they are excited and also scared at the same time at what the online shopping bot might end up buying for the next weeks. The online shopping bot was already launched in 2014 in Switzerland but was stopped because the bot purchased ecstasy pills from the deep web.

Aside from these automated shoppers, there are also a lot of technologies that allow people to better use the web like buzzoid.com – buy Instagram followers today, which allow Instagram users to have more followers through simple steps.
