Could Siri be the invisible interface of the future?

Could Siri be the invisible interface of the future? | Web of Things | Scoop.it

This article points to how Siri, the "intelligent assistant" app on Apple's iPhone 4S, could act as an "invisible interface" for the "Internet of Things".  Use your voice to interact with things, like your smart home.  A voice command like: “close the windows and turn on the air conditioning if the outside temperature rises above 85 degrees,” could be a real-world example in just a few years time, according to GigaOm writer Kevin C. Tofel.  He's convinced that "the Siri of today is just touching the tip of the iceberg for such a future."
