   If you are referring to the Demonstration itself, there is something 
in it in the form of a working Manipulate output, but I assume you mean 
there is not source code? From the URL below, there is also a link to 
the source code notebook (below the caption). This notebook will show 
you the code used to create this.

NBP files are simply Mathematica notebooks that have been enabled to 
work in the free Mathematica Player.

You can find more about Player and NBP Files here:

Hope this helps,
