With deforestation and decreasing number of plants, people are getting disconnected from nature. PlantySound is a product kit aiming to provide communication between plants and humans in a musical way. The kit includes wearable electrodes that wirelessly match with the sound chip translates the variations into the notes which connects to the headphones. In this way, the user can take a walk while listening to the song of the plants by touching them. To understand a plant by transforming its life cycle in a transparent way would strengthen the bond and creates an awareness of the world we are sharing as all of its’ inhabitants.
