Vocal project lets you control your Mac with SiriIf you have fallen head over heels in love with your Mac, and wished that it could actually speak to you as the two of you hold a decent conversation, here is 50% of the answer to your prayers – Matthew Roberts has cobbled together the Vocal project, where it will enable you to use Siri running on your iPhone 4S to control apps, perform searches, copy-and-paste text, master iTunes, and even look up words amongst others on your Mac. Check out a video of the Vocal project in action after the jump.

As Matthew Roberts succinctly put it, “Vocal came essentially from playing with Siri on my new 4S as a sort of “novelty” as I just acquired the device, and since I use my Mac so much I wanted to see if I could write a Siri-like app for it. After looking around the only main competitor was the software from Nuance, but it was over 1GB to download and cost upwards of $50. Considering the 4S can already dictate text, I thought I could make a super simple app “for the masses”, I guess you could say.”
