Everyone is familiar with the situation: you find yourself in a room full of people, listening to a presentation by a speaker. Sometimes, these presentations can be boring. Often when a presentation, the interestingness of the ‘slides’ is one of the key factors. If only those slides would be a bit less static!

PowerRail aims to make presentations more dynamic.

PowerRail is a Papervision 3d and XML powered presenting tool. The application delivers a flash 3d environment in which content ranging from text, images, video’s and even live streams can be displayed, grouped, and presented either in an automatic timed slideshow, or interactively depending on the user or presenter’s actions. This means PowerRail is multimodal, it can for example be used both as a rich internet application to present a set of assets online, or in full screen presentation mode during presentations for audiences.

Because of the versatility of the application the results are only limited to the user’s creativity.
