So some developers over at Applidium have managed to get under the hood of Siri and found out how it works. It was through this discovery that led them to think that there is a possibility of porting Siri over to other iOS devices, and even possibly non-iOS devices such as Android. One developer by the name of plamoni has decided to go ahead and create a “Siri Proxy” project.
Since Applidium revealed how Siri worked and how the requests were being sent to Apple’s servers, plamoni set up his own server and created his own custom handlers to perform tasks that Siri would normally not be able to do. In this case plamoni managed to get Siri to check on the status of his thermostat as well as adjust its settings all from his iPhone.
The project can be downloaded from GitHub although it definitely does not look like something your average iPhone user will be able to get up and running. However if you’re a developer and you have some experience with matters like this, perhaps you might want to take a look at plamoni’s Siri Proxy project on GitHub. In the mean time us regular folks will just enjoy the video demonstration below and dream of the possibilities.
