ICYMI: ESA's Mars mission, amputee touch and more

People who've lost limbs may get touch back with a sensor that can detect texture of objects.

Today on In Case You Missed It: The European Space Agency is sending a probe to Mars to, among other things, detect whether the atmosphere detects gas to indicate 'biological activity' on the planet. Researchers at the EPFL have designed a sensor that can detect texture on surfaces, raising the potential that people with amputated limbs could get feeling back in the limbs that are gone by connecting devices on their arms, then syncing it to their new sensor finger. DIY electronics makers will be into the soldering with room temperature metal.

If you have kids, you already know connected plush toys are a trend. The Toymail Talkie is the latest option that also has the craziest video. As always, please share any interesting science or tech videos, anytime! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag to @mskerryd.
