We demonstrate a novel approach for building situated information systems using wirelessly connected miniaturized displays. These displays are spatially distributed in a physical work environment and present situated glyphs - human-readable abstract graphical signs - to provide activity centric notification and feedback. The demo will showcase how such miniaturized display networks can be used in dynamic workplaces, e.g., a hospital to support complex activities.
