Cool PowerPoint with changeable text areas to calculate formula??

Hey everyone, looking for a way to have it so that when powerpoint is actually running a presentation (like regular fullscreen mode) -- there is a slide that has three captions:


I want it so that each caption has a textbox next to it that actually allows the presenter to enter data next to hours and pay so that once these are entered, the outcome will show a new number (approx Hours * Pay) - so it just runs a simple formula when hours & pay are typed in to present the Outcome (total) number.

Is this possible? Can't find any way to have editable stuff during the actual presentation


traffic in the skyy

if its possible it would be neat
but the only way that i know of would be to have each line
to come into the picture with the data all ready typed out
and then to have it appear in the presentation on a key stroke
so make it as difficult as you can
and keep a calculator handy for the questions
