Human Factors News Monthly Roundup (May 2022) 

Welcome to the Human Factors Cast Monthly News Roundup, a monthly roundup of all news related to Human Factors, Psychology, Design, and Technology as it relates to humans. These stories have been talked about on Human Factors Cast'sweekly podcast or have been identified in our weekly news roundups.  Want this in your RSS/Feed reader? Grab our RSS Feed here.

This month was full of a ton of fun stories that we had a blast talking about. In addition to our normal shows, we also had a chance to sit down and cover EHF2022. We also tried a something different this time by capturing some of the stories/articles we found behind paywalls.  Let us know if you like this approach! We're constantly evaluating new ways to make these news roundups useful for the community. 

Consider joining us on Discord or on any of our social media communities (LinkedInFacebookTwitterInstagram) to continue the conversation with the hosts, and an audience of worldwide Human Factors and UX professionals!
