No matter the platform, voice commands are kind of awful. Sure, Apple’s Siri, Xbox One’s voice command and Ford’s Sync system are some of the better efforts, but by and large, it’s still easier to press a couple of buttons on a controller or make a few swipes on a touchscreen.
Considering the difficulty and sketchiness of voice commands, we imagine this spoof of Apple’s Siri system wouldn’t work all that well. It’s called Steeri, and it seems to have all the same cognition problems as Apple’s personal assistant. The video, put together by The Smart Department, is a humorous look at a form of autonomous vehicle technology that remains a really, really bad idea. Take a look below to watch the entire video.
