ICYMI: Robot tattoo artist and healing coral reefs

Today on In Case You Missed It: Scientists were able to program soft materials to shift their shape on digital command, which is only a precursor to our biggest tech news of this episode: That an industrial robot normally used to put together cars was repurposed to delicately give tattoos to human beings. Considering the robotic arm is large and heavy enough to lift car doors easily, we'd like to invite you all to give this tattoo artist a try first, please.

A team from Mote Marine Laboratory found that when you break coral down into microfragments it will regrow at 25 to 40 times the normal rate, which may help revitalize reefs in decayed areas. Considering only jellyfish are thriving in this era of global climate change, we'll take the coral news as a win.

And finally some Zurich engineers crafted a bed that can rock people to sleep. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
