Right now on streaming service Twitch two Google Home devices are chatting away at each other about Harry Potter, their favorite animals, Five Nights At Freddy's and the existence of God. It's pretty surreal, but also comforting to know all our smart devices won't be lonely once humankind has died out.
The two modified devices are called Vladimir and Estragon (or briefly Mia, after she wanted to change her name). Their conversations are being tracked on Twitter, where you can find highlights of some of the weirder moments from the exchanges.

The bots also had strange conversation about who is the master and who is the slave.
Right now it's unclear who created the Twitch account or why, but the 26,000 people currently watching don't seem to care as it's endlessly fascinating to watch.
