Brandon Fiquett is my new hero! The software developer has turned Siri on his iPhone 4S into K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider. And he’s made the code to do it publicly available so you can also.
Yes, that’s right…you too can be just like David Hasselhoff, hairy chest and all.
With the help of a proxy server made especially for Apple’s voice assistant Siri, Fiquette’s code “handles interaction with a php script that runs on my web server,” he explains. “The php script, which I developed months ago for personal use, allows me to send commands to my car which has a Viper SmartStart module installed,” he adds.
See it in action!
I know what you are thinking and no, you cannot do it. The command “Turbo Boost” will not work. However, the following commands are available: vehicle start, vehicle stop, vehicle pop trunk, vehicle panic, vehicle arm, vehicle disarm, start my car, lock my car, and pop my trunk.
Would you do this to your car? Tell me on Twitter here: @jerryjamesstone.
