As soon as Apple introduced their latest voice recognition system Siri for iOS 5 yesterday, it drew immediate comparisons with the AI assistants present in Sci-Fi films.

HAL from Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey‘ was an obvious one, with some commenting that each request to the new iPhone 4S could be greeted with “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.

But by far the most popular request I noticed, was to get Kevin Spacey to voice Siri, reprising his role as GERTY from Duncan Jones’ MOON. What would it look like? What would he say? You don’t have to wait too long on the internet to find out, we just got this brilliant mock up from Twitter friend @morguendor 🙂
