Few days back, folks at Applidium had cracked Siri's security protocol and the format it uses to communicate with Apple's iPhone 4S.Using that knowledge, hacker who goes by the Twitter handle plamoni has created a proxy server for Siri - Apple's revolutionary voice activated personal assistant feature called Siri Proxy. He says that the idea behind the proxy server is to make it easy for developers to add functionality to Siri.
He has released the source code of the proxy server along with the instructions on how to set it up on social coding site - GitHub.
He has also demonstrated how the proxy server works by creating a plugin to control a Wi-Fi thermostat, which responds to command such as "What's the status of the thermostat?", or "Set the thermostat to 68 degrees", or even "What's the inside temperature?"
You can checkout the impressive video demonstration of using Siri to control the thermostat using the proxy server:
The ability to add functionality to Siri on your own does seem very cool. It will be interesting to see what other fun things we get to see using the Siri proxy.
