Today on In Case You Missed It: The giant robot duel challenge response is in from a Japanese mecha-manufacturer (aimed at some lippy Americans with a super paintball gun) and it’s throwing hella shade y’all. Switzerland’s EPFL space agency realized its old cubesats were cluttering up space so it came up with a hungry hippo of a satellite that should start gobbling up its smaller kin by 2018. And an architect hacked a 3D printer with LEDs and is creating beautiful paintings with light.
Today’s happy bonus video is more like a night terror: Google’s Artificial Neural Network is being used to distort images like this scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. No thanks.
From the cutting room floor: I’m way into the idea of this stretchable mesh that conforms to your body and soothes sore muscles. It didn’t make the cut because there aren’t any videos of the thing, but if you stumble across any similarly interesting clips or stories, we’d love to see them! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag @engadget or @mskerryd.
