The other day I saw the documentary breaking the Maya code. At one stage they showed how the Maya number system worked. If you haven’t seen the documentary, see the wikipedia page on Maya number system. I thought that this would be a nice way to visually represent page numbers in presentations. So, I added a new style to the visual counter, unimaginatively called mayanumbers. A test file comparing this affect with other visual counters from the module is in the github directory of the module.
Have a look at the output pdf. It uses four counters; cycically from the top-left corner they are: countdown, pulseline, scratchcounter, and finally, mayanumbers. !’ll definitely experiment with mayanumbers in my next presentation.
