What does it feel like to have a tiny fox running around in the palm of your hand?

Step into their lab and experience early prototypes of their work, which let you feel heat, cold, and unprecedented haptic realism in virtual environments.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
