Earlier today, two Google Home devices fell in love, argued, made up, and bickered just like an old married couple. It was captured live on Twitch, amassing a whopping 1.1 million visitors as we went to press.
The idea to create an endless, ongoing conversation between the two devices came from AceHax, who works in the home automation business. He grabbed BC_White, FreshGrill, Titokane, and Ace0diamond to make the magic happen.
The twittersphere caught wind of this, creating a custom hashtag #seebotschat. Everyone is having a good laugh:
The power of AI is on display here. Watching these bots chat and build on each other’s sentences calls to mind HBO’s hit show Westworld, in which robots gradually start going “off script” as they reach complete self-awareness.
Google Home launched last November. Interestingly, Twitch was acquired by Amazon, maker of Alexa and Echo. Perhaps we’ll see a cross-device love affair next?
