Captain Kirk does a Crapp on the iPhone: 'Shatoetry' for 'Shatisms'

'Shat that!' - he certainly has

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

William Shatner, the "world-renowned performer and writer", is offering the fanbois the chance to assemble pre-recorded words straight from Kirk's mouth into "Shatisms" - phrases "played out in Shatner's voice".

The Star Trek thesp said of his $2.99 "Shatoetry" app: "People all over the world have been listening to my voice for so long, but they've only ever heard what I wanted to say. I wanted to give people a means to express their thoughts and ideas, using my voice. It's a fun, creative app that I am certain people will enjoy."

Once "Shatoetists" have assembled their Kirk pronouncement, adding intonation and pauses during the "shatoetization" process, they simply hit the "Shat that!" button to hear their masterpiece.

The launch press release explains: "Multiple users can co-create Shatisms together in the app's co-op mode and collaborate online. Advanced users may use it to compose poetry and haiku. However, the more practical and fun creations are simple sentences, phrases, word juxtapositions, and even singular words spoken by Shatner, which can be sent as messages, comments, and communications to friends."

There's more on this complete load of Shat down at the dedicated Shatoetry website. ®
