Today on In Case You Missed It: Stanford researchers just wrapped up a study of bike helmets that found a clear winner with the caveat that it's not available in the US yet. Airbag helmets (like these) are only sold in Europe but are far superior at keeping test heads safe in an impact.

Meanwhile, the ancient city of Pompeii has been partially recreated with 3D imaging, putting back together a wealthy person's house, right down to the correct paint color and in some cases, what sort of surfaces these ancient people walked on. Pompeii was destroyed by volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD so this level of detail is pretty astonishing.

The story about the Nike Mag shoes we all want in our hearts (seriously, just admit it) can be found here. Proceeds from the raffle go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research plus if you win, you'd be the coolest person anyone knows for at least a month.

If you're interested in the US Department of Energy video touring a 3D printed house, that's here. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
