Siri hacked to rap: video
Well I guess nothing surprised anymore when it comes to hackers playing around with the iPhone 4S Siri voice assistant, earlier I posted a video of Siri hacked onto an old school retro rotary phone, and now we have another Siri hack video for your viewing pleasure below that has the voice assistant doing a rap.
The Notorious Siri video comes our way courtesy of the guys over at Redmond Pie and by way of YouTube user Robertboehnke, and delivers just over a minute of Siri rapping out the badness on the iOS smartphone.
The Notorious Siri hack was done as part of the Music Hack Day 2011 in London and is Notorious B.I.G rendition of Hypnotise.
And this is how the Siri rap was accomplished; SiriProxy is used to intercept the communication with Apple servers and then sends the rap to the iPhone 4S, whilst Siri’s speech synthesis is synced to the beat via Echonest API timestamps and are manually tweaked to smooth out any delays.
Personally not quite my cup of tea, put no doubt there are those out there that would love to have their Siri voice assistant rapping it out now and then. Anyone have any idea as to just where we will see Siri pop up next?
So there you go, I’ll leave it right there and let you head on down to mash that play button and check out Siri getting its rap on with the iPhone 4S…enjoy.
