'Sexual Harassment Interface' allows you to grope moaning radishes

The 'Sexual Harassment Interface' is a series of daikon radishes wired up to electric sensors that produce erotic moans and groans whenever they are touched.

The project is the brainchild of Etsuko Ichihara, a former member of Tokyo Waseda University’s digital media group.

With the goal of making thoughts, feelings and abstract concepts physical, Ichihara and her friends put together this setup, which uses electrical pressure sensors that activate pre-recorded moans whenever the radishes are caressed.

The installation will be displayed on December 22nd at a special nighttime Niconico Scientific Society meeting.

I'm not sure brainchild is the term I'd use. Brainfart perhaps.
