Excerpt from an article first published in The New Cybernetics & Robotics Journal (Feb/March Edition, 2016).

But of course, it's pointless designing these kinds of desktop wonders if the actual device is incapable of operating in the real world, without recourse to an infinite supply of battery packs or power generation vectors. What powers the human machine? That's where must look in order to power the next generation of cybernetic augmentation technologies - until such times as we can create small, light weight energy cells capable of running far beyond the lifetime of our products, we fall short.

An energy conversion device is the answer; on the scale we're capable of manufacturing now, I'm confident we can create a unit small enough to be implanted, powerful enough to make the best use of chemical energy found in a human body. We do this by mimicking the human digestive process, improving upon the natural method of nutrient conversion from, say a liquid slurry - perhaps some form of organic protein matrix - directly to chemical potential; the capability also exists to derive neurochemical-specific energy signifiers.

After the trailer of the first DLC of ''Deus Ex: Human Revolution'' named The Missing Link, the official website of the game has been updated with some new information. The official description:

''The Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During Adam's quest for the truth in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all.''

''After being tortured by Belltower agents and having his augmentations disabled, Adam Jensen must rely solely on his basic capabilities to escape from a freighter, destined for an unknown location. While fighting for his survival on the ship, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy that he never would have suspected. As Adam, befriend new, mysterious allies and fight ruthless enemies to discover what was happening in the shadows during the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution!''

After this attractive description, here's a summary of the announced new features of The Missing Link:
*At the beginning of The Missing Link, Adam is stripped of his use of his mechanical augmentations, allowing the player to remake his character as he wishes with the same total level of praxis kit he had before
*Add some new elements to the main plot
*New characters linked to the main plot
*New environments

Also David Anfossi, producer of ''Deus Ex: Human Revolution'', add some comments about The Missing Link:
{{Quote|Gamers will be able to experience a vulnerable side of Adam like never before, which gives the overall game a whole new dimension. 'The Missing Link' propels players into compelling gameplay, beginning with Adam being temporarily stripped of his use of augmentations; new, visually stunning environments; and the continuation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s conspiracy-rich story.}}
The Missing Link will be available next month in October for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. 

For now the pricing for The Missing Link is unknown (it will probably be $9.99 like most DLC add-ons). Anyway, be sure to stay tuned for any new information!
