Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field which brings benefits to all fields of technology. Social acceptance of technology is a very important part of the success of a technology. By studying patterns of acceptance in established technologies that range from unobtrusive to invasive technology, this report has shown ways that previous technologies have stumbled. By knowing the problems of the past we want nanotechnology to make as many efforts as it can to avoid them.
