Missionary Slide Show: the next generation

I haven't posted any eye-candy here in forever, so today is the day.  I've given various PowerPoint presentation between 1-3 times a day for the last two months or so.  For the most part, people seem to stay engaged with what I'm presenting.  But PowerPoint sure has its limitations.

Check out Jeff Han's demonstration of his new touch screen technology.  It runs on a a regular computer (though its a six figure version) and looks distinctly "Minority Reporti-ish."  You can read more about it here.  Sorry I can't embed the video right here...it won't embed for some reason.

I would be awesome to have that kind of technology for missionary presentation!  Give us another 15 years and we'll be there.

This is very cool, Jeff. I love maps and seeing pictures of places tied to where they are on the map and the first 30 seconds or so of this video well illustrates how very well a missionary can bring her audience into the reality of any locale.

Speaking as someone who remembers the first generation of slide shows well . . . (some slides mildewed, or accidentally slipped in upside down or sideways etc - and always always ending with a sunset)

Thanks for showing us this.
