The Social Rewind for July 13, 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: We’ve previously reported about 3D-printed body parts, cars, and more. Now, Workrite Ergonomics shares this post about a fully functional 3D-printed building being constructed in Dubai. What’s next, a planet?

Tektronix shared this cool post about how engineering students are using nano-generators to develop a way to generate electricity from a car’s wheels to help combat energy loss.

This Gooch & Housego post tells a sci-fi like tale of how researchers are using squid skin to help soldiers battle infrared detection.

It sounds like science fiction, but it isn’t: the skin from a squid furthers IR technology. Read for more info.

MAKE Magazine’s post makes us think who needs a Segway when you can create a walking machine that’s simply powered by a drill.

And we close out this week’s column with our look at Hakko’s powerful FA430 Fume Extractor, which is in stock and ready-to-ship.

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.
