The PechaKucha (which is the Japanese word for chatter) presentation format has exploded in popularity since its introduction in 2003. Traditionally PechaKucha requires speakers to work with computers and presentation software such as Powerpoint or Keynote. Rules require twenty slides timed at twenty seconds each. This makes each presentation succinct and fast-paced. PechaKucha unplugged with follow the same format just without the technology usually associated with this presentation style.
