Today on In Case You Missed It: Voters in the Florida Keys may have passed a measure to use bioengineered mosquitoes to combat the Zika virus and Dengue fever, but it's still a battle to get a community to accept the insects. The FDA has approved use of altered bugs that are designed to mate, which would then result in offspring that would quickly die. You can get caught up on the back-and-forth, here.

Meanwhile Tesla and SolarCity are touting a small American Somoan island as an example of solar energy done right. With a mix of panels and Tesla Powerpacks, the community of about 600 people is at nearly 100 percent renewable energy for everything.

If you're interested in the apple computers as planters, the artist's work is here. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
