Don't click 'like' on Facebook again until you read this

Facebook has changed the way people do a lot of things online. For example, you probably notice yourself reflexively clicking “like” on anything your friends post on Facebook, even if it’s just to acknowledge you saw it. Scammers are taking advantage of that reflex for a dangerous scam called “like-farming.”

DeepDream Twitter Bot Spews Trippy Photos

Deepdream Bot/ Twitter

A picture of a boy and his dog warped by Psychic VR Lab.

Transport yourself to a magical land of slug people, dog monsters, and other psychedelic scenes as you scroll though the Deepdream bot Twitter feed. Be forewarned, a significant portion of your day may be lost.

Ever since Google opened up its “DeepDream” source code, we’ve been mesmerized by the uncanny, computerized dreamscapes that Google’s artificial neural networks (ANNs) cook up, nightmarish chimeras of wobbly towers, bird-cars, and random limbs.

Last week, the Popular Science office as well as the rest of the internet couldn’t get enough of the DeepDream image generator. Now the Deepdream bot on Twitter makes it easy to spend countless hours looking at images submitted by people using Psychic VR Lab, another web implementation of the code. As users upload their images to be transformed, a before and after is posted on the generator’s website, and the bot shares them on Twitter with the hashtag #deepdream.

You would look equally miserable if you had a slug for a bun.

Just a couple of NeverEnding Story Falkors.

Thomas Kinkade’s experimental phase.

Sun of a Thousand Eyes.
