Shape-changing displays and interfaces have attracted much attention for enabling intuitive expressions and physical interactions. Furthermore, integrating other modalities, such as color change, on the shape change can be one of the next challenge on this field. In this project, we propose a new method for changing shapes and colors simultaneously, making full use of the characteristic of the material. Each pixel has a layer of elastic elastomers with different color and can be controlled individually by air. On this system, it is possible to change pixel size and color. The array of the pixels can express 2.5D move and the change of the color. Each pixel also has a touch sensing function that enables users to interact with it intuitively. In this paper, we describe the concept of COLORISE, related work, system design, evaluation, implementation of interaction, and user experience of the exhibition.
