" I think that computers today allow us one last opportunity to provide something like a level playingfield in America."
- William Gibson

Big Screen Control  
  Display content from your personal device on a large shared screen.  

What if you have some visual material that you are using on your personal device, but would like to share it with others on a large screen? No problem for the joymaker.

"Would you like to see the coconut on the Moon?"

"This is just tape," the boy said. "No participation. Just look as long's you want to."
