” “Why buy a drill if what you really want is a hole?” Alex told Nora about product service systems, which turn products (like drills) into services (like a drill rental service). There are many examples of product service systems all around us. Car sharing services and public libraries are good examples.
Now, there’s a new twist to some product service systems: peer-to-peer. Instead of borrowing or renting from a company or organization, sites like NeighborGoods and SnapGoods encourage their users to borrow from one another.
