The Social Rewind for April 20, 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 edition, Workrite Ergonomics’ post of an story about the potential for wearables gaining ground in the workplace made us wonder how many of you might be reading this on your wearable right now.

We named ours Q-Bot! posted about how some factories name their robot workers (after superheroes, anime, etc.) to make them more acceptable to the human workers.

We bet ol’ T.J. would love 3D printers! MAKE Magazine looks at the Maker-in-Chief: Thomas Jefferson.

Today is Thomas Jefferson's birthday! Did you know he was an avid Maker?
