London, June 28 : A Japanese engineer has transformed a potted plant into an "Ikebana Speaker" that makes leaves vibrate and produces sound.

The speakers, brainchild of Tokyo Keiji Koga, use real plant parts - stems to conduct sound waves, leaves and flowers to serve as cones - to fill a 16ft radius with music, reports Times Online.

A magnet and coil at the base of the vase hooks up to a CD player.

And following that relays the sound vibrations up the stems.

The quality has been described as closer to vinyl than a CD.
