Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

When an ugly old stereo speaker won’t do, Japanese-spawned Ka-on will turn your flowers and houseplants in magnetically-driven audio speakers.

The AP did a pretty poor job re-working this press release. Get the info, sure, but at least try to edit it into something less blatant.

What’ll happen to plants that have this juice coursing through them?

Not only does Ka-on deliver music, it keeps bugs off plants and helps cut flowers last longer, [company president Masumi] Gotoh claims.

‘’The plant is happy listening to music,” says Gotoh, showing off a rubber plant hooked up to Ka-on in his Tokyo office. ‘’Gerberas and sunflowers work especially well as speakers.”

Yeah right, I’m sure the plants won’t experience any stress from being used like this. Guarantee you you’ll have pot after pot of dead foliage from using this thing.
