Today on In Case You Missed It: A virtual reality simulator putting mice through a pretend maze is analyzing memory formation that should benefit humans. A newish space launch company plans to inflate stadium-sized balloons for a gentle flight to the stratosphere, with actual flights scheduled for 2017. Meanwhile researchers built a tractor beam using high-amplitude sound waves to move small objects, which is just as cool as it sounds.

And before you go hacking into a hapless pumpkin, check out a few videos on how to cleverly tech or science them out. We recommend this fire-breathing version. If by some chance you (like an editor at Engadget) also didn't know about Pizza Rat, you can see the original video here.

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