AI art has become hugely impressive – sometimes. The latest generation of AI art generators can conjure up experimental images in all kinds of styles much more quickly than a human artist could illustrate them. The results have become so convincing that there are concerns for the future of artists' jobs, but examples like this bring things back to Earth and show how unreliable the tools can be. 

Since AI art generators don't actually understand what they're creating, they can come up with some very strange images – confusing a hand for a foot, for example. The example below is causing much hilarity over on Twitter, but we're wondering if we might start seeing this kind of anatomic anomaly cropping up everywhere (if you need to catch up on how text-to-image generators work, see our piece on how to use DALL-E 2).
