Why no links from the video to the actual project?

Why no links from the video to the actual project?--This looks like it has been inadvertantly left out of most/all of the recent Gadget Freaks.

I am not singling out this particular project. (I was interested enough to search the information out, and to log in and speak up)

I get an email with a link to Gadget Freak, but only to the video. I find no links anywhere on the video page or in the video that leads to the actual project information. (I am most interested in reading the schematic and what was done to accomplish the project)

I had to go to the DN home page and find the Gadget Freak ad on the right side, click on that and search the projects to locate the one I was interested in.

 

I hope this can be fixed for future projects. Maybe past ones too???

I've seen older solutions that amplified the noise generated by a Zener diode. Digital uber analog now a days. Good thinking!

The impressive part of this is the cost -- without the transistor, under a dollar. With the transistor, it's $1.50. That, of course, assumes you have some speakers handy. Nice idea, good execution.

The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
