Siri can start your car remotelyForget about asking mundane stuff like how the weather would be like, or to schedule your appointments. Why not have it do something far more interesting, like starting your vehicle remotely? Of course, we do know that Apple is notorious for their closed system, hence making it really, really difficult for developers to come up with something out of Apple’s box – but then again developer @plamoni is crafty enough to set up a proxy server so that Siri can talk to it, tricking it into thinking that this is one of Apple’s servers. This breakthrough allows you to set the temperature on a wireless thermostat with Siri, while one of the more interesting applications would be to speak to your car. As in, you can ask your vehicle to start its engine, to lock the vehicle, or even open the trunk – all through the power of voice. Some of the accepted commands include “Vehicle Arm”, “Vehicle Disarm”, “Vehicle Start”, “Vehicle Stop”, “Vehicle Pop Trunk”, and “Vehicle Panic”. Is this the humble beginnings of a real life K.I.T.T.?
