This is the same request as in bug 38263 from 2011. that was confirmed.
But that bug is spammed so let me move the issue here. 

Zooming presentation can be a standalone app on a limitless canvas, like Prezi. 
But more practical for LO is MSO approach with old PptPlex add-on that landed in MSO 2016.

There are a number of OSS zooming presentation software, which might be helpful for the implementation of this feature in LibreOffice:


Jared also wrote: If there is ability to create "zoom areas" within slides, I think this could solve the basic function.  But ultimately a higher-level control to give navigation to the whole presentation would be the way to go.
