For all those who’ve been outraged by the success of crappy little ‘powerbalance’ bands, here is some good news.
This is a brand of ‘woo’ that very much taps into the placebo effect, using some key tech terms such as energy, balance, and holograms which “work with your body’s natural energy field”. Yeah, right.
Trouble is gazillions of people bought them.
Now the ACCC has slapped them down, and ordered them to refund all customers who feel they were misled! That should be most of them.
