Control Siri from across the room

Fun little device with classic sci-fi styling lets you trigger Siri from up to 50 feet away.


The iPhone 4S' digital personal assistant Siri appears to be heading toward cult classic status. Check out this great little gadget created to enhance your voice control experience.

The Iris 9000 from ThinkGeek is a neat device that lets you control Siri from up to 50 feet away with a micro remote and a built-in mic that picks up your voice at a distance.

But the real draw is the nostalgic design. The module looks like Hal from "2001: A Space Odyssey" and and even has a glowing LED eye that flickers along with Siri's voice.

We just love the below video of the Iris 9000 and Siri together.

Iris 9000 will set you back about $60, but your artificial intelligence fantasies will finally be a reality. The device will be available next year.
