Flatland is an augmented whiteboard designed to assist informal activities in one's office environment. Current research focus is on the software architecture to support stroke-based interaction. This demonstration illustrates the user interface aspects of the board, focusing on its screen real estate management, flexible control of various behaviors working on the surface, and context based search mechanism. The combination of simple user interface based on strokes and advanced stroke management architecture can greatly enhance the basic functionality of physical whiteboards without damaging original strength of them.
