HAL 9000 From ‘A Space Odyssey’ Is Coming for You in Siri iPhone Dock Form
The calm demeanor and occasional irreverence of Siri, Apple’s new natural language personal assistant software, has quickly garnered comparisons to the super computer HAL 9000 in the Stanley Kubrick classic ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’
The folks at Think Geek have capitalized on the similarities between the two with their IRIS 9000 Voice Control Module for Siri.

The dock, which looks just Hal from the movie, both amplifies Siri’s voice and includes a enhanced microphone that will pick your voice up from further away. The IRIS 9000 costs $59.99 and will be available in 2012.
We can only hope the fate of anyone who buys it will be better than that of the astronauts who interacted with HAL 9000 in ‘Space Odyssey.’
