Artists and engineers are using cutting-edge technology to create flowers and plants for the Taipei International Flora Exposition that's taking place in the Pavilion of Dreams.

According to the Associated Press, the show features "paper-thin speakers [blaring] pop music" out of a 3.5 ton artificial flower, "three-d [flower] films...on elongated screens with no need for special viewing glasses," and "viewers' pulses [turning] cocoons into butterflies in an interactive display."

Almost 2 million people have visited the exposition so far, which opened in November and is set to run til April, reports the news source.

The exposition will also feature a number of outdoor gardens representing various parts of the world and information on some of the world's most intriguing plants. According to the event's website, some of the rare blooms and plants represented there will include cactus, living fossil ferns, orchids, peonies, pineapples and calla lilies. Orchids make rare and beautiful potted plant gifts, while peonies and calla lilies also double well as cut flowers and bouquet additions.
