Talk to your smart phone to unlock car!

Published On: Sun, Apr 20th, 2014 | Telecommunications | By BioNews

What about giving a voice command to your smart phone to post Selfies, play songs or even unlock your car!

Four students from University of Pennsylvania have developed a technology called GoogolPlex that allows users to get more from Apple’s iPhone by simply talking to it.

The technology uses Apple’s voice-sensitive personal assistant called Siri to make it capable of playing specific songs, taking photos and even adjusting lights in your house.

“Imagine being able to unlock your car through Siri. With GoogolPlex, these are now possible,” the researchers were quoted as saying on

Till date, most people use Siri to set reminders or find destinations on a map.

The technology uses a clever linguistic trick, servers and third party apps to enable users.

The students are now working to make it possible for anyone to build their own commands using GoogolPlex.
