Developer controls his home lighting with Cortana

South African developer Matt Cavanagh has shown Cortana can be useful for more than just finding the nearest Pizzahut.

Using an undisclosed method, he hooked up Cortana with a Bluetooth-equipped Netduino module controlling a desk lamp.

Of course we have seen voice control of WIFI-controlled lights on Windows Phone before, but with Cortana now being native to Windows Phone we think this method is set to become a lot more prominent. Hopefully if Windows Phone eventually become supported for use with the Phillips Hue for example we will see such functionality built in as more than just a demonstration.
