“letting a plant to express its internal life” Using Bio-electric Signals and #Arduino

Canada’s CBC stopped by the Assiniboine Park Conservatory recently to view the project of artist Helga Jakobson who converted the electrical signals from the now-shuttered conservatory‘s plants into a ‘symphony’ of sound – I too look forward to one day hearing the complete Plant Symphony!

As the Assiniboine Park Conservatory gets ready to close down for good this spring, Helga Jakobson is giving a voice to the plants who call it home.

Using special equipment, the Winnipeg-based visual artist is harnessing the tiny electric currents produced by the plants and using computer software to convert them into sound.

And she’s using those sounds to create a symphony.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
