Nowadays, using apps have become an essential part of our lives, as they provide us tools to help us to communicate, shop, entertain and such. Of course, one must be careful of what to download because some apps may bring some disturbing outcomes.
This is the case of the “Randonautica” app. It shows you a random location (depending on the area where you are) so that you can explore it. Although it may sound fun, if you are not prepared enough, it’s be better not to do so. The purpose of the app is to meet places but it may take you to strange situations, to find disturbing objects or even encounter some type of paranormal manifestation.
When you open Randonautica, it will ask for permission to access to your current location. Once you authorized it, you must read the instructions for security matters.
Even the app itself warns about the riskiness of using Randonautica. It also advises to explore preferably in daylight and accompanied by someone. The app asks to not enter private properties and in the case to find yourself in an uncomfortable or dangerous situation, to leave the place immediately.
Randonautica uses a quantum random number generator to give you a set of coordinates for your local area. The idea is to encourage as mention before to explore around with a desired intention in mind of what you’d like to come across.
Before start, it provides three different options to give you locations. This will depend on what you have in mind, so it’s necessary that before choosing one, you must understand their functions.
The first one is called attractor, this means a place has the highest concentration of quantum dots and it may lead you to face weird situations.
The second is void. This is the opposite of an attractor. It means an area contains low quantum concentration. You could have some negative, awkward or disturbing experience.
The last one is anomaly. This is the stronger pick of those two different options, so be careful and don’t take it lightly.
Once the option is chosen, you must think of something -this should be with a good intention as suggested by the app- and you’ll receive the coordinates of a location close to you.
It is important to choose wisely your intention because if it’s something bad, you could confront some scary or odd experience. Randonautica is only for those who are brave enough to face the unknown.
What’s so curious about this app is that it seems to predict the things that are going to happen according to what you thought of.
There are some creepy videos of explorations that some users have shared through social media. Especially in Tik Tok, where the #randonautchallenge went viral. It consists of filming the results of the exploration by those who are curious enough to do it.
While some experiences may be positive and fun, there are some that are not. Some people have been taken to abandoned places where some weird things happen and with no logical explanation. According to their experiences, cellphones starts to fail or vehicles get stuck. The most curious thing is that many claims to have seen the presence of owls which is the app’s logo.
But that’s not all. There are videos of unknown people staring at the users while they seem to be in a kind of trance. Also, smoke has been seen in the middle of nowhere, creepy figures, animals behaving strangely or cars chasing after them. In addition, finding peculiar objects such as dolls with gloomy appearances, creepy drawings or messages and even human remains…
The reason why these things happen is not certain, not even how the app works at all. Regardless, it’s best not to risk it. Because if something looks dangerous, it probably is. Your safety is more important than your curiosity.
Of course, if you still want to give it a try, don’t say we didn’t warn you…
