If you thought a virus on your computer was bad enough, get ready for some carnage... This work was performed by a team of researchers at the University of Michigan and University of Electro-Communications in Japan. The researchers found that your voice activated smart devices - be is that you have a google home mini, Alexa, or even a smartphone - can be pretty easily hacked into using a laser that carries a wave with the same frequencies as a voice. Think about that for a second... An invisible wave of light that mimics the same frequencies (that you can't see or hear) that trick an audio identifying software into thinking it's you asking for permission to enter your own home? YIKES. Check out the video below for more information - Thanks to Smarter Every Day.
