Plot Summary

Dr. Nuron designed the world's biggest computer, "Super-Elec". The giant computer was made to almost run the entire city. Super-Elec did handle all traffic and street light, bridges, tunnels, subways, city heating, police radio, airport traffic and on.

Soon in the city; traffic jams, street lights exploding like roman candles, subways running wild. And in homes people are chased by electric appliances.

As Super-Elec said: Humans are finished. The age of machines has come.
