Siri understands Furbish

While Apple’s virtual assistant app Siri only recognizes English, French, and German, it also appears to understand Furbish, the gibberish language of the electronic toy. At least, it appears to be getting something out of the conversation, and given that I don’t know what the Furby is saying I’ll give Siri the benefit of the doubt. She did better than I would have.

You know, the next time Apple “loses” an iPhone prototype, I hope it ends up in the Mos Eisley Cantina.
