The Social Rewind for October 20, 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 compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of 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 still unsure of where you “stand” on the benefits of standing up while you work? Reading GelPro’s post may sway your opinion.

How will grandma and grandpa feel about having robot chauffeurs? The Robot Launch Pad’s post looks at robocars as the perfect fit for retirement communities.

Wearable technology is cool, but its use as a tool for people with disabilities also offers endless possibilities. Check out MAKE Magazine’s post about a glove that can translate sign language into text and help make communication for the deaf a little easier.



Hey Trekkies, remember those plastic toy Tricorders you had as a child. They didn’t do much of anything, but sure looked cool. We’ll, Robot Magazine’s post about an open-source Tricorder that actually works will have you saying, “Beam me up, Scotty” in no time.




Instructables’ post presents an idea that could make brainstorming meetings a bit more fun: The Whiteboard Costume.


And we close out this week’s column with our post about our new Facebook Coupon Code promotion offering 5% off Bevco Seating.
