And the winner for oddest nanotechnology ad goes to…

As we move into a long holiday weekend here in the U.S., it’s time to indulge in a lighter moment in nanotech.

Being suspicious of a sponsored link by Target on a “nanotechnology” search results page, I clicked on it to find this page of four highlighted products:

Benny the Bear Memory Foam Plush Bear
Donny the Dog Memory Foam Plush Dog
Nanotechnology For Dummies (For Dummies (Math & Science))
Nanotechnology: An Overview DVD

The last item has no information available; just an ISBN, if you dig for it.

The book title sums up this ad strategy. Re-deploy your advertising budget elsewhere, Target!

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend. We hope all Nanodot readers have as much to be thankful for as we do here at Foresight. —Christine

    Hey, as far as nanotech goes, Nanotech for Yahoos is pretty good…lol…

    Benny the Bear may be coated with some of the “Smartsilver(TM)” silver nanoparticle technology that Penn-State startup, NanoHorizon, developed.
