ICYMI: Tour a Warzone in VR, Champ Rock-Paper Bot and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: A Syrian news agency is giving viewers a chance to nearly walk the ground of a bombed out city center with a virtual reality tour. Rock, paper, scissors champs would cry themselves to sleep after taking on a Japanese robot that wins the game every time, thanks to high-speed tracking tech. And OpenROV's underwater drone is being heavily funded on Kickstarter, bringing maps of the sea floor to everyone with some spare cash and a penchant for the ocean.

Next up, please laugh at this parody with us: It's for a fake app called "Nickleblock" that plays a Nickelback song each time a user tries to look at an ex on Facebook.
