Attack of the Smart Speakers

Written by Tom McLaughlin

Attack of the Smart Speakers Synopsis

There's a new craze in town for smart speakers and everyone has got one. At first they seem super helpful, but Tyler and her friends soon start to get suspicious. It's like these virtual assistants are really the ones in control-but no-one else seems to notice. It's not long before the assistants become mobile, attaching limbs so that they can crawl around like weird spider robots. Spiders are bad enough, but robot spiders trying to enslave humanity? That's a problem that need to be squished, fast!
