Like this story, reminds me of my first electrical circuit, it was a high-voltage generator, using a battery and couple of transistors, it was an interesting challenge to hold on to thiose metal bars!

That was one my first few circuits too. Much before I studied engineering, since my childhood I was passionate about building small electronic gadgets by referring to books/magazines which used to publish hobby circuits. Even though I did not fully understand how that circuit worked, I built that circuit with two transistors and a small speaker form an old radio. My friends and I had fun with that for some time.

That is good idea and design. Now it can be done with simple piezeo buzzer.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
