ICYMI: Rock-like smartphone, stomach tap and more

Today on In Case You Missed It: The FDA has just approved a device for obese people that is first surgically inserted into the stomach, then used like a tap after meals to drain up to a third of the food inside. The Runcible 'anti-smartphone' is going up for sale for $300, designed to not make a single noise except to notify you of incoming calls. It includes a camera, bluetooth and touchscreen, but still clearly resembles a rock on the back.

And finally, It is this show's first birthday, so we are touching on a few of our favorite stories from the last year. If you'd like to check out a brief clip of the pigeon video out of New York, that's here. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
