ICYMI: Barely hoverbiking, new hair dryer tech and more
Today on In Case You Missed It: YouTuber Colin Furze teamed up with Ford to build a working hoverbike within just a few weeks, from his shed. It runs off of two diesel engines so granted, it's probably not the most mass-production friendly item, but does beg the question: What's holding everyone back, then?

Photographer Levon Biss worked with Oxford University to take incredibly detailed, microscopic photos of bugs, which were then blown up and printed into large posters. And Dyson has released its first personal care device and it is a re-imagined hair dryer, called the Supersonic, which is far less noisy and heavy compared to modern day dryers. They will cost $400.

Make sure you can talk with some authority about the military's digital strike against ISIS, but also know all about why a teenaged girl is being sued (along with Snapchat) after crashing while going more than 100 miles per hour in her daddy's Mercedes. As always, please share any great tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
