Fight Against Maturity

And if you believe this I have a bridge I’d like to sell you…

A potted plant at a cafe near Tokyo, Japan is entertaining customers by writing a regular blog about its feelings.

It is the work of a university engineer who has been studying how to communicate with plants. He devised a sensor which he attached to the plant named “Midori-san” that measures bio-electric signals. These are converted into data by a computer next the plant and then translated into Japanese in the form of a blog.

The plant’s latest entry reads: “It was cloudy today. It was a cold day.”
