How might the sen­sory expe­ri­ence of inter­act­ing with a humanoid robot be made more authen­tic? This short film explores the real­ity of a humanoid robot that pro­duces a fear scented ‘sweat’ on its palms in antic­i­pa­tion of meet­ing a human for the first time. This ‘sweat’ is for­mu­lated to defuse any fear felt by the human on first con­tact and enhance the encounter.
