ThinkGeek has just released an innovative remote control for Siri on the iPhone 4S; called Iris 9000 it bears more than a little resemblance to HAL 900 of 2001 fame and will enable you to take control of Siri from across the room.

By simply placing your iPhone 4S into the Iris 9000 cradle you'll be able to utilise the micro remote in order to bring Siri to life from up to 50 feet away.

The mic on the remote means speech recognition won't be a problem, whilst the speaker will amplify any responses you get. You can also make and receive calls using the Iris 9000 like a standard speakerphone.  Oh, and the Iris 9000's glowing eye flickers along with Siri's voice - creepy.

The Siri-enabled Iris 9000 will be available in spring 2012 for $60, and if you're interested ThinkGeek has begun taking email requests now.
