During the week of 31 December 2002 - 6 January 2003, the weekly online nanotechnology news service NanoApex ran a poll which asked its (most likely technophile) visitors the following question:
"Would you ever consider a BioMEMS implant for yourself to treat a medical condition?"
The poll results were reported on 7 January 2003 at 07:06:39 PST as follows:
Yes, I would be ecstatic! 35.86 % (52)
Yes, I would be willing to try it 54.48 % (79)
Only if that was my sole treatment option 4.14 % (6)
No, I would never consider it 4.14 % (6)
Undecided 1.38 % (2)
