DNP Programmer built a bot to buy random stuff from Amazon, takes secret Santa to a whole new level

In what may be the quickest route to landing on an episode of Hoarders, programmer Darius Kazemi has built a shopping bot to buy him around $50 worth of stuff every month from Amazon completely at random. He compared it to putting something on backorder and then receiving it months later, as if it's a surprise gift you bought yourself. The only difference with this Amazon Random Shopper he built is that it buys him, well, random crap that he may or may not like. Kazemi recently received his first shipment, and it consisted of a book about Cartesian Linguistics by Noam Chomsky and an electro-acoustic album by Hungarian composer Ákos Rózmann. We'd say that's pretty random. Maybe if he increased the limit to $300, he could get a Kindle Fire HD, or a maybe a few deer heads. This could turn out to be a pretty good idea or a really bad one, and we can't wait to see what treasures the following months will bring him.
