We are recruiting participants for an experiment!

We are recruiting participants for an experiment, the 21st Century Prototyping Affordance study. If you participate you will be asked to evaluate a prototype of a product while we measure your brain activity. Afterwards, you’ll be asked to complete a survey.

The experiment takes place at Queens Building, and lasts less than one hour (i.e., you’ll be back in time for lectures etc.)

All participants will be able to opt-in to a “prize-draw” with the chance to win gift certificates. We are giving out 1x£120, 2x£80, 3x£20, and 4x£10 gift certificates for Amazon. Winners will be randomly selected after data collection is complete.
