There are individual differences in color vision. It is difficult for a person with defective cones in the retina to recognize the difference of specific colors. We propose a presentation method of color information by using a projector camera system. The system projects border lines or color names on real object surfaces when they have specific color combinations. Effectiveness of the proposed method is verified through experiments.
