Abstract

Many people carry mobile phones, which have a sufficient amount of connectivity, processing, and user interface to do more than just make mobile phone calls. Many mobile phones are already used as personal information managers (PIMs); this invention extends their capabilities to include support for presentors.

Using a mobile phone for presentation support

With this invention, a laser pointer is added to the mobile phone (perhaps in the antenna) and the progress of the slides is controlled using the simple controls already on the mobile phone. This could be acheived through a local networking standard or through a dial-in connection to the Internet which could then communicate with the laptop or projector.

Other enhancements include timers (total time used, total time remaining, and time per slide) as well as presentation progress indicators.
