ICYMI: Google's Face-Policing API, Rage Rooms and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: Google's new API for Android applications comes with face detection that can tell if you're smiling or not. Then there's the trend in Rage Rooms that looks like too much fun to keep to ourselves. And a hoax of an amazing prototype: A supposed adoption of Volkswagen technology birthed a stroller to follow you around, using collision sensors to avoid people or objects. This thing should really exist in some form, yes?

Next up, a lot happened in news this week, which we cover in rapid-fire fashion in TL;DR, yet we're still most interested in Google's decision to restructure into Alphabet.

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