It is a singing plant
Using a custom capacitive touch sensor, Arduino and Processing, the Touché Shield for Arduino developed by Disney Research Labs, with just a single wire stuck in the dirt the plant turns in to a fully functional multi gestural singing theremin, inducing bond between human and flora. Meant to stimulate an interest and foster a scientific curiosity and love for all kinds of plants and our underlying connection to everything living and breathing on the planet, the Singing Plant is a simple device that can be applied to any type of plant in any type of soil or water.
