The Easiest Way To Create a Presentation: Slidebean

Slidebean is a new cloud-based platform that lets you create amazing presentations in seconds. No cutting or pasting, no font changing. Just worry about the content.…
Robin Good's insight:

Slidebean is a new presentation web app which simplifies to the max the difficulty required to create a visual presentation.

Creating content is as simple as typing. The design part is kept completely separate, and you don't have to worry about it as you input your text content.

When you decide to go to format your presentation you are offered a set of pre-designed options, just like you get image filters on Instagram. You test and try the ones that are most appropriate for your presentation and you are set to go.

Slidebean presentations can contain text, lists, images and video clips and can be viewed on any device or operating system.

Finalized presentations can be published online, shared, embedded or downloaded as HTML5 presentations in a .zip file.

Free plan available. (up to 5 presentations with up to 10 slides)

HTML5 Goes Beyond Prezi But for Geeks Only: Impress.js

Robin Good: The video opening titles for Museum140 ( have been created with a new tool that leverages the power of HTML5 to achieve results that are identical to those that you can achieve with Prezi, the alternative presentation tool.

Impress.js is a presentation tool inspired by the idea behind and based on the power of CSS3 transforms and transitions in modern browsers.

Though Impress.js remains for now a tool for geeks and people who can use code, Impress.js heralds the upcoming legion of HTML5 presentation tools that will be likely start to rapidly grow in 2012.

Text, images and graphic elements can be easily positioned on a virtually infinite canvas in which they can be easily scaled, resized and positioned at will. Even a 3D rendering effect is available.

The Tiniest Presentation Remote Control Is a Mouse: The Logitech Cube

The Tiniest Presentation Remote Control Is a Mouse: The Logitech Cube | Presentation Tools |

Logitech has just announced a new type of mouse that is as small as large pencil eraser, has no cables and can act as a perfect remote controller for presenters needing to manage the flow of their slides during a live event.

In fact, as the Cube is lifted from any surface on which it was resting, it auto-swtiches to "remote control presentation mode" allowing you to progress through your slide deck with a simple scrolling movement of your finger on it.

The tiny Logitech Unifying® receiver connects up to six Unifying-compatible devices with a powerful, reliable wireless connection (up to 25 meters). So the Cube works with your other Logitech Unifying devices without taking up another USB port.

Check this video introduction showing how the Cube works:

The Cube will be on sale this January for $69.99

Create a Presentation With Curated Social Media Content: Slidestaxx

Create a Presentation With Curated Social Media Content: Slidestaxx | Presentation Tools |

Robin Good: Slidestaxx is a web-based service which allows anyone to easily create a shareable and embeddable visual slide-show by selecting and bringing together existing images, video clips, web sites and other content already available online.

My take: I like the idea of being able to produce presentations that contain properly "credited" third party content, but it would be even better to have these functionality integrated in your existing favorite presentation tool rather than elsewhere.

I think that this curation-presentation format suffers from the natural constraints of how we look at presentations. One slide at a time. I think that any curated-format benefits from providing the possibility to see both the detail and the larger picture and in this case I feel that the ability to see the presentation, also as an album, woud greatly benefit the value and benefits of this tool.

The service is free to use.
