In this paper we propose an adjustable structure for flexible screens, based on electroluminescent phenomenon. The final product is thin, flat, flexible, long-lasting, easy to modify, reproduce and install. When combined with pressure matrix, it could become a touchscreen. Changeable pixel number and pixel size, plus the flatness and flexibility, make this structure ideal for interaction interface prototype for smart objects, where the surface size, shape and flatness are the main requirements. As demonstration we show this flexible screen on a window, on a bottle and on a gymnastics mat.
