Many of you would be familiar with SiriProxy by now. The server hack allows technical and knowledgeable users to make the digital assistant do things which it wasn’t programmed to do originally by creating custom Siri commands.
We have already seen many hackers engaging the Proxy to several uses. One of them is Mark Hodder who is a freelance webmaster; he used Siri to run household appliances like Fireplace, Christmas Lights etc.
To convert these appliances into web-enabled clients, he made use of an ioBridge and several X10 modules which he controlled though SiriProxy installed on his MacBook. He recently posted about his home automation project on his blog which really looks impressive and useful.
Though this SiriProxy is limited to some users who are familiar with Ruby and other programming languages, it is still impressive how developers are coming up with so many of its uses and it is expected that soon it will be available for public use through these developers or Apple itself.If you found this post useful, hopefully hit the +1 (recommend) button ⇉
