As Daniel points out in a recent comment, another interesting zooming site is Prezi (formerly ZuiPrezi), a web app for creating presentations based on zooming rather than slides.


The concept of laying your presentation out at various scales and rotations on a single infinite canvas and zooming/panning from place to place is a great one; it helps break you out of the linearity of the typical slide show presentation. They’ve also got some fun UI touches, like the way their main menu is all zooming/rotating as well.
