Searching for a calmer environment that can bring you closer to nature without leaving your office? Start-up GreenNote has created a device that allows users to listen to music made by plants. Resembling a speaker, the device attaches to the leaf of a plant and to the soil next to the stem. Electrodes pick up micro-voltage fluctuations between plant and soil. Signals are sent to a Arduino Uno board, where proprietary software converts them into music. Any external interactions with the plant, such as touching, watering or moving the plant will change the electrical signals and the music. Therefore, users can create their own symphony of nature.
