Today on In Case You Missed It: Facebook just built an aircraft that can stay aloft over areas without internet, beaming it down for free. Uber is announcing a partnership with AARP in an effort to get more part-time drivers from the retiree crowd. (We helpfully provided a CDC stat about fatal car accidents because we love you.) And NASA engineers are designing drones to explore areas of planets that rovers can't get to.

From the cutting room floor: We were all set to walk you through making this ejector bed but the 'Uber teaming with AARP' story won out. But for those of you who never want to get up in the morning (*raises hand, plops back onto pillow*); news you can use.

If you come across any interesting videos, we'd love to see them. Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag @engadget or @mskerryd.
