ICYMI: Drone Architects, Radar Attachment for Phones and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: Scientists programmed quadcopters to autonomously construct a basic rope bridge that could support the weight of a person, all part of an effort to use drones when distances or climbing might be necessary. A new Kickstarter campaign takes aim at antiquated radar guns for sports like baseball, adding a smartphone attachment that determines the speed of balls while simultaneously taking video and notes. And a new mini-cartridge startup is targeted at console game lovers. They look like a original Nintendo cartridge but connect into a smartphones audio jack.

Space enthusiasts will appreciate our final video: The stitched together New Horizons fly-by of Pluto that took photos and rendered them over a circular shape, creating a low-altitude global fly-over.

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