ICYMI: LEGO drones and the amazing 9-year-old 3D printer

Today on In Case You Missed It: An expensive drone kit with a starting price of $190 is out on the market, aimed at teaching science, technology and math to kids in a fun way. Flybrix uses Lego bricks to craft UAVs that can be crashed and rebuilt again, which is probably a smarter buy for kids than something with $40 or more replacement rotor blades anyhow. Meanwhile, 9-year-old Calramon Mabalot could probably teach a STEM course, since he just 3D printed a prosthetic arm for a teacher. The whole story only touches on the charm that is this kid’s YouTube channel. If he’s the future, we’ll be alright.

We also briefly played Lego Donald Trump and followed that with a palate cleanser of a video: A dog who is afraid of a windshield wiper. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
