Today on In Case You Missed It: Researchers from The University of Melbourne are about to launch a clinical trial into whether paralyzed people can control an exoskeleton suit simply by thinking about moving. It functions thanks to an implanted device in the brain and clinical trials will begin next year. If it works, the system could be available within about six years. We don't have to tell you how huge this would be.

Meanwhile, University College of London researchers got together to study the similarities between pancakes and the eye, to better help them understand diseases like glaucoma.

Winter sports enthusiasts might appreciate this crowdfunding campaign for wearable sleds for each leg, that frees up your arms from having to actually carry a sled around.

And finally, we wanted to share a glimpse of this newly designed super truck out of Russia. Apparently lakes are no problem for it. Yet somehow, it's not a duck boat. As always, please share any interesting science or tech videos, anytime! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag to @mskerryd.
