Touch a plant to unlock beautiful music. You and a partner create an electrical connection via metal pads and a live plant.
What's Going On?
By touching the plant and both arm rests, you and your partner complete an electrical circuit that’s built into this bench. Both plants and people are mostly made of salty water, which conducts electricity. So the mild electric current flows through you, your partner, and the plant, turning on the music.
