GLaDOSiri = Siri + Portal

Oct 8, 2011 - 8 Comments

Anyone who’s a fan of Portal should appreciate this mockup video, which features the voice of the malevolent AI system from the game series, GLaDOS, replacing the default voice of Apple’s new Siri assistant. So nerdy, but so cool, it’d be great if this actually came to fruition, but don’t get your hopes up.

Siri is exclusive to iPhone 4S with iOS 5, although there is some speculation that the voice assistant feature will come to iPad 2 in the near future as well.

Original Siri video from Apple is shown below:

    I would pay $20 even $40 for a John DiMaggio (Bender from Futurama) voice pack!

    Why does Apple not give a little credit to the source of such stuff as “Siri”, which was developed by a group at SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute) in Menlo Park CA where I worked for 30+ years. SRI also spun off the very successful Nuance Corporation (speech recognition) as well as several other companies (including Intuitive Surgical, home of “Da Vinci” robotic surgery systems.)

    I love it! But I agree with Purple, it might be dangerous to have such an “assistant” around you ;).

    Haha! Very clever, but without Valves assistance this wouldn’t ever happen. Plus, something tells me Apple doesn’t want a crap-talking voice assistant that slowly tries to kill you :)
