Today on In Case You Missed It: The latest servant robot to join the Pepper and Buddy crew is Big-I, a Kickstarter bot that uses 3D vision, motion tracking and facial recognition to help out the humans in their household. We say it looks like a rolling trashcan with a disturbingly large eye, but for those looking for an IoT hub that's more mobile than Alexa, it could certainly work.

Meanwhile, Duke University researchers are hot on the trail of spinal cord injuries and why zebrafish can heal completely after a severing in that region. They've pinpointed the responsible protein and are now moving onto trials in mice; a thrilling development for humans with damage to that part of their body.

The Trickstick Kickstarter is here and we must recommend the story about hackers hijacking a home's lights using a drone and a software update. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
