Hear plants play your favourite tune on the Ikebana Speaker

June 28th, 2008 - 4:24 pm ICT by ANI  

London, June 28 (ANI): A Japanese engineer has transformed a potted plant into an Ikebana Speaker that makes leaves vibrate and produces sound.

The speakers, brainchild of Tokyo Keiji Koga, use real plant parts stems to conduct sound waves, leaves and flowers to serve as cones to fill a 16ft radius with music, reports Times Online.

A magnet and coil at the base of the vase hooks up to a CD player.

And following that relays the sound vibrations up the stems.

The quality has been described as closer to vinyl than a CD. (ANI)
