It didn’t take long for someone to put Siri into A Space Odyssey 2001 and remind us of how Siri is much like HAL. Now ThinkGeek brings Iris, Siri backwards, 9000 cradle for your iPhone 4S to allow for you to control your iPhone via a single button remote. The expensive cradle of $60 packs a mic and speaker into the box along with the infamous red glowing “eye” to remind you that HAL, I mean, Iris is listening.
ThinkGeek is announcing today that it will release an accessory for the iPhone 4S that works with Siri, named Iris 9000. The Iris 9000 is a voice control module for iPhone 4S & Siri that allows for you to control Siri from across the room.
Simply place your iPhone into the Iris 9000 cradle and use the included micro remote to trigger Siri from up to 50 feet away. Just tap the Iris 9000 remote button once, listen for the Siri chime and speak your command or question. The built in mic on the Iris 9000 picks up your voice from across the room and the embedded speaker amplifies Siri’s spoken responses.
You can also make and receive calls using the Iris 900 like a standard speakerphone. Oh, and the Iris 9000′s glowing eye flickers along with Siri’s voice!
The Iris 9000 will be available in Spring 2012 for $59.99 and ThinkGeek has begun taking email requests today, which will alert those who sign up the moment the product is available for shipping.
Below are some more specs on the Iris 9000. However, if you’d like more info or would like to chat about the product, contact me [Jessica Darrican / 305-576-1171 x.116 / Jessica@maxborgesagency.com].
