ConTeXt is probably the best tool for this, but take a look at
for the example done by AcroTeX
"This is a nice example on the use of the AcroTeX Bundle and PSTricks for 
a talk given at the 15th ICTCM Conference, Disney World, Orlando. The 
presentation was inspired by some of Han Hagen's (ConTeXt) presentations."

I don't know if this is what you meant, but it uses pstricks and latex
packages.  For ideas you should check out the ConTeXt website
on any of Hans Hagen's talks.  Each is unique, never the same
layout twice.  http://www.pragma-ade.com/

We have his examples in the 
	presentations on Sunday and Monday
