The Social Rewind for March 30, 2015

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?

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 edition, Workrite Ergonomics shared this post about the least healthy thing we do every day…you’re probably doing it now as you read this.

Robots are a modern-day invention, right? Check out Bishop-Wisecarver Co’s post about some early examples of robots in history.

Sidewinding snakes may be some of the oldest creatures on Earth, but as this Robot Magazine post shows, it took state-of-the-art robots to learn about the way they move.

Watch the amazing and touching responses from this Laughing Squid post about colorblind people using glasses that allow them to see colors for the first time.

Leading off this edition, Fashion Seal HC’s post says that 42% of consumers use social media to get reviews of doctors, treatments, and hospitals. Further proof of social media’s incorporation into our daily life.

We continue to move closer to the world that sci-fi writers predicted for us decades ago: Tektronix’ post tells how we are one step closer to receiving solar power from space.

MAKE Magazine’s post offers these beautiful, kinetic motorized sculptures created by artist Jennifer Townley. This combination of art, science, and engineering is enthralling.

A sad reality of recent history is that many veterans now exhibit traumatic brain injuries. NIST’s post tells how they’ve helped create MRI measurement tools that show promise for detecting the subtleties of these injuries.

Good ol’ Dave over at the EEVblog is always entertaining. In this video post, Dave tears down an LG Plasma TV to give us an inside look. Pretty cool!

And we close out this week’s column with our blog post summarizing our successful ESD Control seminar.

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.

The combination of 3D printing and medicine continues to evolve with new applications seemingly every week. 3D Printing Industry shared this post about medical models that are so realistic that they feel real to the touch and even include a blood-like substance.

Weller’s Soldering 101 post of an Instructables video is a tip about tips, more specifically, how to tin a soldering tip.

The photos in this post by Mashable show the beautiful, but scary, large icebergs that are washing up on the shores of Cape Cod.
