Apple has made its name across the globe by producing some of the most ground-breaking, trend-setting gadgets that others had yet to be able to replicate with similar success as they did. And one of the most astounding creation that Apple had produced so far is the remarkable voice recognition software in their iPhone 4S, Siri.
This highly-sophisticated software is almost like a personal assistant in a phone, where it could understand commands and questions from the user, and replies with a shockingly human-like answers or actions that is in Siri’s ability; such as setting up the alarm, or write and send a text message (all from the iPhone itself of course).
And with such sophistication which enables the phone user to use just a finger and his own voice in executing an action, Apple is now planning to add another button in the cars of today, one that will activate Siri during driving. Dubbed the Eyes Free, it is basically a button mounted on the steering wheel which will activate Siri through the user’s paired iPhone or iPad (Siri will also be in the iPad in the near future).
Most probably to be paired via Bluetooth, the driver can now have the access to most of the phone’s functionality without taking his eyes off the road or the hands off the steering wheel. And due to Apple’s globally-renowned position, there are already a number of automakers lining up to have this Siri button installed in their vehicles, which among them are automotive giants like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota and Honda.
