Today on In Case You Missed It: Scientists have built a robot that is controlled by software directly modeled on a worm's brain, near cyborg-style. ARCA has built a hoverboard they say can actually hover above ground for up to six minutes and is being sold for $20,000. Meanwhile the U.S. Marines are discharging a robot for being a bit too loud for stealthy applications: The LS3 is being put out to pasture.

Those of you who've seen the new Star Wars movie will be into this: A lightsaber that can cut minor things (though no human hands yet), from funny guy YouTuber styropyro.
