Today on In Case You Missed It: Researchers at Harvard have created a "tunable" material that can grow, shrink and change shape on command, which could lead to Capsule Corp-style housing. Italian scientists invented a robotic octopus that leverages shape memory alloys to propel it along without the need for internal robo-bones. Finally, the Intelligent Sensor Design company of Japan has developed an industrial machine capable of tasting in the same manner as the human tongue.

Then there's the guy who decided to swordfight a quadcopter. Remember kids, it's all fun and games until the UAV puts out your eye. As always, please share any great tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
