Gadget turns plants into amplifiers
People who like talking to their plants can now enjoy a musical accompaniment, thanks to a Japanese invention that turns petals and leaves into amplifiers.
Called the “Flower Speaker Amplifiers,” the gadget made by Let’s Corp is hidden in a vase or a potted plant and sends music at just the right frequency to vibrate up the stems and then be converted into audible sound by the plant as a whole. A device such as a CD player or radio can be connected to it.
“Anywhere where you would want music naturally integrated with a natural surrounding,” said Hirohiko Okugawa, a manager at Let’s, referring to locations for the device, which he expects it to be popular for hotels and hospital lobbies. reuters
