If you’ve watched the Lego Batman movie that was released just last week, you might’ve noticed something familiar – Batman’s personal assistant uses the same default voice of Apple’s personal assistant, Siri. His personal assistant works pretty much the same way, responding to his requests whenever he says “Hey ‘Puter”.
It’s been discovered that if you use the same command on Siri, she will respond to you as if you are Lego Batman. Just activate Siri and say “Hey ‘Puter” or “Hey Computer”, and she will give you quirky Batman-related answers such as “I’m at your service, Lego Batman sir”, “Hello, sir. I’ve heated up your lobster thermidor in the microwave. I’m one step ahead of you, Alfred”, and a whole lot more.
This is not the first time Apple has added in such a feature to Siri. Back when Google Glass was just released, Apple started supporting “OK Glass” on Siri, which gave responses such as “I’m not Glass, and I’m just fine with that”, “Very funny. I mean, not funny “ha-ha”, but funny”, and more. It also responds in a similar way if you say “Hey Cortana” or “OK Google”.
In addition to that, remember the movie “Her”? The movie featured an AI digital assistant that was way more advanced than Siri, or any other digital personal assistants available back then, and Siri didn’t seem to be very happy about it.
If you asked Siri “are you her”, she gave some pretty angry responses like “No. In my opinion, she gives artificial intelligence a bad name”, “No. I don’t spend much time with purely fictional characters”, and such, but fortunately, it looks like she’s mellowed out a lot. If you ask Siri about “Her” now, she would give responses like:
This is feature available on Siri on your iOS devices, as well as Siri running on the latest macOS.
