Siri PlexWe’ve seen Siri used to start your car, and now it looks like we’ve got another use for Apple’s famous voice-controlled assistant. A developer has managed to get the Siri Proxy working with a Plex command line interface to basically turn his iPhone into a voice-activated remote control. In the impressive video demonstration, all the developer had to do was speak commands naturally without any weird syntax and Siri performed excellently, launching the right episode and even informing him that it couldn’t find an episode he didn’t have.

If this is a glimpse into the future of the Apple TV, then I’d say we’re on the right track. After all, why wade through multiple menus just to locate the show you want to watch when you can say it aloud? Check out the video demonstration for yourself:
