IRIS 9000 Lets You Control Siri From a Distance

The only way to control Siri is if you hold the iPhone and speak directly to it; but now, you can do this from afar with the IRIS 9000.

If the IRIS 9000 looks familiar, it’s probably because it looks a lot like HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Much like the homicidal A.I., the device responds in a creepy voice to your voice commands. It’s simple to operate and only requires a simple plug-in between the iPhone and the IRIS 9000. It’s operated via a micro remote and the built-in mic will be able to pick up your voice from up to 50 feet away. There’s also a speaker that amplifies Siri’s voice for you to hear.

With the IRIS 9000, you can enjoy commanding from afar. Just don’t try to jeopardize its task, it didn’t end well for the crew on Discovery One.
