The Social Rewind for June 6, 2016

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: With this Tektronix post, we learn about a new electronic material that can heal itself multiple times—thus opening up new breakthroughs for wearables.

Agilent Technologies’ post informs us of an unprecedented human event that is both historic and somewhat unsettling: Senior citizens will soon outnumber children around the world.

Here's an excellent post from Xuron Corp that offers tips on lighting for hobbyists and electronics manufacturers.

Who are the scientists who simulate the end of the world? The National Nuclear Security Administration shared this piece that looks at the National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center (NISAC), a combination of Sandia and Los Alamos scientists tasked with modelling a variety of disasters that could threaten life as we know it.

Giving robots true 3D vision could change the face of manufacturing…and disrupt the workplace. This 3D Printing Industry post focuses on Japanese company, 3D MEDiA Co, and their efforts to create such a 3D vision system for industrial robots.

And we close out this week’s column with our post about a new way to subscribe to Q Source emails: Text-to-Join.

There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We enjoy bringing you this weekly column and hope you liked reading the Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared your interesting posts with us and if you would share this column with your friends and colleagues.
