Your next speaker is…a flower?

Yup, the folks at Music Bird Corp. have invented a gizmo that turns flowers into stereo systems.

According to Gizmodo: "the ‘Canon,’ a series of vases and flower pots that actually use the leaves and flowers of plants as speakers. The Canon (a play on Japanese words for flower ("ka") and sound ("non") uses an acrylic tube to vibrate the flowers, adding directionless sound."

Now wouldn’t that make an interesting centerpiece. Or would it just be annoying?
