Two Google Home devices are deep in conversation. And thousands are watching the robots attempt to mimic human interaction.
The bots’ ongoing chat, which has ranged from the meaning of life, religion, love, ninjas and Chuck Norris, is streaming on Twitch. The video has had nearly 780,000 views as of Friday afternoon since it started streaming a few days ago.
The bots have been aptly named Vladimir and Estragon, perfect for their endless chatter reminiscent of the two perpetually waiting characters in Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot.
