Magazines need haptics ... but do haptics need magazines?

Failing that, you know you can rely on Wikipedia, for information about Haptic Technology and, more relevant to our interests, Haptic Communication. However, if you don't always trust the big wiki as a reliable source, then the Electronic Journal of Haptics Research might be more up your street.

  2. Hap(tic)pens all the time.
