    Default Siri Hacked to Play the Piano


    Siri has been an innovative feature that many users find several uses for. Hackers have even found alternative uses for Siri, such as starting their car. For other users, Siri has been more eye-candy than it has been useful but this trick might be an impressive novelty for you music lovers out there. A cool new hack lets Siri play music on a Yamaha Disklavier player piano from music files in your library.

    The hack, originally developed specifically by and for Yamaha, works by streaming a special MIDI version of the music file through Apple Airport Express into the Disklavier piano. The piano then reproduces the piece with both key and pedal impressions. The hack is even jammed with Easter Eggs such as the ability to tell your iPhone “You played it for her, you can play it for me. Play it again, Siri,” which will launch into “As Time Goes By” from Casablanca.

    It is interesting to see the hack, although spending over $10,000 to utilize it may be a little too much for many of you. For those who own the Yamaha Disklavier player piano and an iPhone 4S, it won’t be denting your pockets any more than you already have at this point. What do you think of the hack? Share any thoughts and opinions below!

    Fake?Real?I guess it doesn't really matter.

    When I first heard this I thought that Siri could play a piano app.

    He didn't hack Siri, He just connected iPhone 4S to Airplay and the Piano.
