Developer Brandon Evans has made Siri control the Philips Hue light bulbs using SiriProxy. He's posted the code and instructions on how to get this working on GitHub.

The first thing that I wanted to do with the Hue bulbs is get them working with Siri. I had seen last year someone created SiriProxy (in Ruby, luckily for me), and that it should allow me to do this. I'm actually using the The-Three-Little-Pigs fork as it has active developers, although I'll continue to just call it SiriProxy. The other part of making this work was the Hue API. Philips has said that they want to release an SDK at some point, however quite a few people have sniffed the API already and gained almost full control of the system.

Some of you guys call him lazy. But so it's the tv remote instead of getting up and changing the channel you use a remote. And when we look up info on the Internet instead of going to the library. I think this is pretty cool.
