The Social Rewind for November 17, 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, our long-time vendor partner, Brady Corp., posted about being invited to celebrate their 100th anniversary by ringing the closing bell at the NYSE. Congrats!

Tektronix shared a post with several cool stories, but this one about a spoon that provides the user with a salty taste without the salt really caught our attention as a solution for people with food restrictions.

You must watch the video portion of this post by MAKE Magazine because this 3D-printed gun that folds and launches paper airplanes has to be seen to be truly appreciated.

It rolls and patrols! Laughing Squid posted about the Knightscope K5, an egg-shaped robotic security guard that may someday replace humans for some applications.

“Sweep the leg!” Uh, better think twice and read this Mashable post. Google’s robot does a perfect Karate Kid Crane Pose.

And we close out this week’s column with our post of a little Friday Fun imagining alternate uses for some of the products we carry: Check out DuraStripe’s Footprints Floor Safety Signs used for dance lessons.

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.
