- The whole thing actually started back in October of 2014 when a Swiss team by the name of !Mediengruppe Bitnik decided to conduct an experiment of sorts. The aforementioned robot was given each week $100 worth of Bitcoin and programmed to purchase various items from the Darknet, illegal or otherwise.
- They programmed the robot to purchase stuff at random from a Darknet marketplace called Agora and then have the items automatically delivered to a Swiss art gallery. Unfortunately, while the highly anticipated exhibition was being prepared the cops got wind of the shady business and arrested the robot.
- Among the confiscated loot, the police found mighty interesting (and certainly random) items such as a baseball cap sporting a hidden cam, Chesterfield cigarettes, fake jeans, Nike shoes, some e-books, a Hungarian passport, and the said Ecstasy pills.
