Today on In Case You Missed It: Microsoft Research developed a new 3D camera capturing system that creates a live-time 3D hologram of a person that can be sent to interact with other people, as long as they have a matching virtual reality set-up. If that's confusing, the video straightens it right up.The National Science Foundation is releasing details on a study it has been funding for the past six years, being done out of University of California, Santa Barbara. Scientists there have been tracking the pH levels near the Antarctic and have found that sea life is struggling to survive while living in increasingly acidic water. Meanwhile an inventor in India saw the disposable plastic utensil problem in his country as an opportunity to make edible cutlery that is actually a dense millet bread.
