Would it be possible to use the iridescent oxidization layer and diamagnetic properties of a bismuth foil to create a full color display by physically morphing the shape of the screen to the angle at which it is being viewed?

I imagine that the images produced would be rainbowy, they wouldn't be crisp, and it wouldn't be cheaper or in any way better than current displays, but could it work?

       There's your answer then. A 1500 x 1000 array of small aquaria, an array of electrodes and a little Pavlovian training and you're all sorted.
