The Social Rewind for October 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: Tektronix shared this post about a combination of human creativity and robotic arm technology to paint a picture. Imagine how this could be used to assist disabled people with basic tasks, allow machinery operators control in dangerous environments, and even open your beers for you as you sit on the couch watching the big game. Okay, we made that last one up, but it could happen.

In a somewhat related story, Oktoberfest is here and that means beer. Puritan’s post has great advice on how brewers of all sizes can keep bacteria out of their brew.

Okay, if you are one of those sit on the couch, drinking beers kinda folks, this post from Laboratory Equipment magazine might interest you. Read about how new research is leading to an “Exercise Pill.”

From couch potatoes we move over to gases. Agilent Technologies post looks at the scientist who discovered an entire section of the periodic table: Sir William Ramsay and his “noble gases.”

Do you know where “argon” got its name from?

If gases make you think of hot air, perhaps this next post is appropriate. This 3D Printing Industry post is just in time for the presidential debates: Now you can 3D-print presidential candidate shoes (featuring Hillary and The Donald).

And we close out this week’s column with our latest Guest Blog post: The Importance of Testing & Monitoring Your ESD Grounding Devices by Craig Zander of Transforming Technologies.

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.
