Friend or Foe?

Within the factory walls a new species has emerged. Human’s quest for technological advance has seen the creation a life form not known to this world. The machines have been programmed to make a monster, a being of infinite growth. Thriving on the ability to learn from mistakes the technology expands outwards beyond the realms of the factory floor and the confines of the industrial setting. Will the new life form offer solutions to this world or consume everything in its path?
