I have a beamer presentation to describe a very rough overview of my project, but I abstract out the details. However, I would like to show details on slides in case someone asks me questions. Since I want to decide if I want to show details, on the fly, I want to be able to "press a key" and "take a detour" or activate a sequence of slides.

If I don't press this key then I would like to skip the set of slides (describing the details). Can anyone give me a hint of how I can do this in beamer.

Of course I don't know how this works with a presentation remote, but I guess that is really software dependent and its off context for this forum.

You can create buttons on the slides, and make them into hyperlinks that point to other frames of your Beamer presentation. For example, in some frame you can add \hyperlink{<label of another frame>}{\beamerbutton{See details}}, and then by clicking this button (with a mouse) it'll take you to the frame containing the details. – Herr K.
