The IEEE Transactions on Haptics has a new Podcast format, which is designed to keep you informed about topics in haptics while you are on the go by providing a brief summary of the articles in each issue. Editor-in-Chief J. Edward Colgate says,
"I'm terribly excited about the new podcast format that we are debuting. Podcasts are something of a tradition at ToH. In the past, Federico Barbagli interviewed selected authors and guest editors and turned those into some outstanding recordings that you can still find on our multimedia page. But I think that Will Provancher, our new podcast editor, has truly hit the bulls-eye with his approach. Will asks authors to respond to a few key questions in writing, and then converts that information into a concise and immensely useful issue summary. I listened to the first one while doing the dishes. The format is great for a situation like that, but Will's production is good enough that you might just want to sit down at your desk, turn off the computer, and listen. Either way, you're guaranteed to learn a lot about the content in the latest issue of ToH. How can you go wrong?"
