Overview

NISE Network product
Would You Buy That (NanoDays 2014)

Description: 

Like all new technologies, nanotechnology has costs, risks, and benefits we cannot always predict. The Would You Buy That? stage presentation examines and explores ways our consumer behavior both impacts and is impacted by new technology. By looking at historical examples and current and future nanotechnologies, audience members weigh the risks versus the benefits and make group purchase decisions. Sometimes we need to stop and think more about a consumer decision.
