Apple’s Siri technology comes to the latest LG television sets. The South Korean electronics company has come up with a TV remote control that can recognize simple voice commands. By speaking to the Magic Remote, users can search for online content, configure settings and control certain features.

The voice-recognition technology will be an add-on to the current motion-gesture remote control. LG ‘s Magic Motion remote works similar to the Nintendo Wii where users can use certain hand and arm gestures to operate the onscreen menus.
