I just learned the new iPod Shuffle has a limited TTS feature. Well, someone had been having fun using the iPod Shuffle and the Kindle 2 to re-create scenes from a few movies (The Wrath of Kahn, Star Wars and Blade Runner).

I don't see either device coming up with an Oscar nomination but the clips are kind of cute.

Check them out here. BTW, I could only get it to work with IE not FireFox.

It's seems like the Shuffle TTS only reads song titles and playlist names (that sort of stuff).
