Today on In Case You Missed It: UC Berkeley is using VR, motion capture and spatial mapping to put a human 'into' the body of a robot with a technique called robotic teleoperation. The video looks like a complicated form of the claw game, but also gives a really interesting perspective.

Germany's Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics is running, finally, after nearly 20 years of design and construction. The hope is that its design will lead to a safer alternative to nuclear power.

And a Kickstarter project is asking for money for a cable that backs up your data while charging your phone. It costs about $60 for either an iOS or Android charger; snap it up if you're into redundancy or don't trust cloud storage.

It was really a week for car news. We recommend reading editor Roberto Baldwin's reporting on the Uber protests in San Francisco. As always, please share any interesting science or tech videos, anytime! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag to @mskerryd.
