Today on In Case You Missed It: Neuroscientists figured out what fruit flies are thinking with fluorescent molecules. Minecraft now has an internal smartphone that can be used to text and call people within the game. And this new smart flossing product that gives a strip of floss once the button is pushed also serves to shame your partner for not flossing with lights that come on if a daily cleaning is missed.

We also run through the week's headlines, from Mark Zuckerberg rolling stock into a charitable company to scientists voting in favor of doing gene editing studies. We also recommend checking out the story about Japan's robots taking over nearly half of the jobs in the country within 20 years.
