Plant Near Tokyo Blogs
A potted plant at a cafe near Tokyo, Japan is entertaining customers by writing a regular blog about its feelings.
It is the work of a university engineer who has been studying how to communicate with plants.
He devised a sensor which he attached to the plant named "Midori-san" that measures bio-electric signals. These are converted into data by a computer next the plant and then translated into Japanese in the form of a blog.
The plant's latest entry reads: "It was cloudy today. It was a cold day."
I don't know that a blogging plant is such a wondrous feat, since

Oooooh, that description is so detailed that I can smell it! ;-)
"Baisy"---heh heh. You are the master of inventing new words. Fantastic!
