Siri Hacked to Become a Voice-Controlled TV Remote

There’s no doubt about it – Siri’s being used for some pretty awesome stuff these days, from starting and locking a car, to controlling a home thermostat. 9to5Mac reports that the latest Siri proxy hack allows Siri to be used as a high-tech TV remote.

This hack uses the same Siri proxy trick used in previous Siri hacks, and links up with Plex using a command line interface to start movies and shows much more quickly than you otherwise could.

Considering how smoothly and effectively this works, I wonder about how this relates to the vision that Steve Jobs had for an Apple television set – it certainly seems possible…

Siri’s capabilities are seemingly endless – it won’t be long before Siri can be used to control our homes, unlock hotel doors, or even make us breakfast in the morning.

Now all that’s left is for Apple to officially support this so all iPhone 4S users can benefit! Check out the below video to see the TV hack in action:
