In this research, we propose a tube display, TuVe as a novel flexible display applicable to various shapes of surface. It is possible to wrap the tube around the surface of an object and present information. In this paper, first, we investigate the system configuration to generate droplets. Next, we discuss about the method to control positions of the droplets. In addition, we also propose a calibration method to define the relationships between the pump drive time and droplets' positions. Then, we evaluate the performance of proposed system with experiments. As a result, we confirmed that it was possible to control the positions accurately of colored droplets by the proposed calibration method.
