The Social Rewind for December 8, 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, TE Connectivity shared this post about the wearable robot suit that Harvard is developing for soldiers. We wonder if the same technology can be used by people with physical challenges for everyday tasks.

Tektronix posted about new roof-top air conditioner technology that beams excess sunlight and heat into space. It’s not smoke and mirrors, well, maybe just mirrors.

Brady Corp. shared this post about efforts to use recycled electric car batteries to provide power to schools in Third World countries and other poor areas.

Sounding like one of those old bar bet scams, MAKE Magazine’s post shows how you can open a bottle of port with a feather.

Will machines and robots end humankind? We find out that Stephen Hawking believes that’s a strong possibility in this post by Mashable.

And we close out this week’s column with our post about a cool new feature we’ve added to QSource.com: The Bevco Ergonomic Seating Questionnaire.

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.
