The Social Rewind for August 25, 2014

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly blog digest of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows some really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.


Leading off this week, are you ready for some football? Zebra Technologies shared this post about how their partnership with the NFL will track live player data in real time.


It didn’t take a tractor beam to draw us in to this post by Tektronix. Self-assembling robots, impossible engines, tractor beams for boats, and magnetic microhair materials, oh my!


How bizarre, how bizarre! Laboratory Equipment magazine’s post looks at how a fossil of a weird, worm-like creature with an indistinguishable head, spikes, and legs has finally been linked to modern animals.



How many people does it take to solve a puzzle? Laughing Squid shared this video about a ‘round-the-world Rubik’s-Cube-solving trip.



An adult-sized Big Wheel. That’s all you have to know about this MAKE Magazine post.



And we close out this week’s column with our post about all the useful pluses of Brady’s new BMP21-Plus Portable Label Printer.

There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We hope you enjoyed this week’s Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared other interesting blog posts with us. Keep on reading! We’re look forward to continuing The Social Rewind through 2014. This is an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 30th anniversary. Keep your eyes open for new features, promotions, interviews, and more. See you next week!
