Coincidentally Jarvis

From Christopher Mims, writing for Quartz:

The result is a prototype wireless headset called “Jarvis” that sits in the wearer’s ears and connects to his or her smartphone. (Perhaps coincidentally, Jarvis is also the name of the voice recognition and artificial intelligence software in the Iron Man franchise.)

Coincidentally? I’m pretty sure these names get picked by engineers who occasionally get to leave work and see movies.

If I were a super-smart hardware and software engineer, you can bet that I’d build a bunch of voice-activated robots to do my bidding.

Cool stuff, Intel. Here’s hoping it works into our smartphones sooner than later; Siri needs all the help she can get.
