A Siri-Integrated HAL 9000 Dock for iPhone, Coming 2012

From the moment Siri was introduced to the public with iPhone 4S, the comparisons to HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey began. With a surprisingly powerful, albeit quirky, voiced-based interface, it’s quite understandable. Thankfully, the wonderful people at ThinkGeek have made the rhetorical reality with Iris 9000.

Next to the traditional iPhone dock is a spitting image recreation of HAL 9000, complete with pulsating red eye and 1950s IBM design aesthetic. The device also amplifies Siri’s voice, and provides a more robust microphone for picking up your voice from farther away. There’s even a mini remote to activate Siri from across the room, or even while sitting in your pod locked out of your spaceship.
