We combined plants and circuits to get musical plants.

Drawdio is an electronic sound synthesizer. Ehe Drawdio circuit plays a musical tone with a frequency that varies based on the resistance between two points. When you hold Drawdio in your hand, your body becomes part of the resistive loop, and you can do all kinds of fun tricks, like play a little tune with a plant!

Makey-makey is a circuit that turns everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet.

When you touch the plant, you make a connection, and MaKey MaKey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer just thinks MaKey MaKey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). Therefore it works with all programs and webpages, because all programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse input.
