ICYMI: This rock-armor insect could change medicine

Today on In Case You Missed It: Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley discovered that an insect called the caddisfly spins strong, stretchy silk that works like a biological sticky tape. The caddisfly uses it to attach stones to its body to protect it underwater; humans are more interested in the fact that the waterproof adhesive might have medical applications. The publication Deep Look made a great video of the bug's underwater life that's worth a full watch if you're interested.

South Korean researchers developed a hydrogel touchpad that can be stretched more than 1000 percent of its normal state and still function like a conductive pad.

There were plenty of interesting stories from the week; we are most interested in seeing what will happen in the latest Tesla car crash investigation. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
