The Social Rewind for July 27, 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?

“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’s column: Are repair crews still filling in winter potholes on your local streets? This Elkay Plastics post looks at VolkerWessels plans for creating recycled plastic roads that will be more durable and outlast the usual asphalt we’re used to.

American Hakko is good at getting people excited about soldering, but their latest post might even get your mouth watering, too. Circuitry Snacks look like a fun way to combine food with a love of electronics: That’s a tasty looking PCB!

Not sure what this 3D Printing Industry post says about the times we live in, but we’re hoping The Smithsonian’s Kickstarter campaign to 3D scan Neil Armstrong’s iconic space suit (Reboot the Suit) is a resounding success.

The Smithsonian is hitting up Kickstarter to 3D scan Neil's suit. #3dprinting

In another national museum related post, the Edison Awards shared this one about a new, exciting exhibition called, “Inventing America” that’s now showing at the National Museum of American History.

Are bionic industrial workers far off? This post by MAKE looks at Ekso Bionics new Industrial Exoskeleton, which allows workers to manipulate heavy or awkward machinery with ease.

And we close out this week’s column with our look at our blog post about our in-stock, ready-to-ship AIM Solder products.
