Powerpoint / Slideshow Karaoke

Last year while I was at SlideShare.net, me and my friends were thinking of some cool ways to use our API. At the same time we were checking out emails from our users about how they are using sideshows in more fun way. Just then we came to know about PowerPoint Karaoke here and here.

Demo

After a few hours of javascript hacking, this is what I came up with.

How it works

It will fetch random (Creative Commons Licensed) sideshows from slideshare.net using the API. The application uses the SlideShare.net API and Prototype/Scriptacluous to create some pretty visual effects. The SlideShare Karaoke Randomizer was used for the first time on 11th July at the Creative Commons Salon in San Francisco!

Here’s a great writeup for how to run your own PPT karaoke.
