Apple wants to add Siri voice commands to "smart docks" around your home

Various companies are working on bringing "always-on" voice command options to consumers. Motorola obviously added it to the Moto X, and Qualcomm has added support for it with the Snapdragon 800, though no device has taken advantage of that yet (the Nexus 5 is only listening when you're on the homescreen). A new patent makes it look like Apple is also looking into ways to offer always-on Siri...

I like this. A house add-on I would enjoy having & using, especially in the kitchen where surround ceiling speakers are (which could be connected with the dock).

"Users will also have the ability to assign a specific audio prompt that would trigger Siri, such as a spoken phrase or various other sounds such as a finger snap or hand clap."

Combine this with Phillips Hue lighting and app, and you got yourself a pretty nice set up.

An excellent idea. I would love to see this integrated with Apple TV, though.
