Leo’s excited about his first high-end technological creation, a pair of attack orbs meant to protect the family, but when they can’t differentiate between friend and foe, they create more harm than good. Meanwhile, Chase steals Davenport’s Eddy technology to make a “Cheddy” app and win a Tech Town employee contest, but things go awry when the technology glitches.
Leo’s excited about his first high-end technological creation, a pair of attack orbs meant to protect the family, but when they can’t differentiate between friend and foe, they create more harm than good, as they attack anyone who gets within a certain range (5 feet) of him. Leo temporarily decides to keep them in the capsules until he can get rid of them. Janelle also invites him to see a play starring her. Meanwhile, Chase competes in an app-making contest against Scott. After failing to make something people will enjoy, he resorts to stealing Davenport’s Eddy technology to make a “Cheddy” app and win the contest by outselling Scott's app 10:1, but things go awry when the technology glitches and Donald finds out. Davenport resets the source of the app, which opens the capsules and releases the orbs. Eventually, the orbs get to the school gym, where the play is taking place. After causing havoc, Leo eventually turns them on each other and destroys them.
