Did You Know?
All the actors' costumes used groundbreaking illuminating fabric in their costumes to create the circuit line effects in the computer world. The costume department had intended to use rechargeable batteries to power the suits, but found the design unfeasible when the rechargeable batteries would drain after only a few seconds of powering the suit. With no other option, the costumers had to resort to a more conventional method: using hundreds of AA-sized batteries. Each costume had to be rewired to fit the battery size, and the batteries would only hold a charge for a few minutes at a time before a noticeable loss in luminosity would occur from the suits. Thus, the batteries for each costume had to be refreshed for every take. When illuminated, the EL fabric would produce a massive amount of heat and would cause electric shock if it made contact with the actors' skin. Most of the actors sustained electric shocks and burns from the illuminating fabric used in their costumes over the course of the production, in particular Olivia Wilde
whose costume left a large amount of her bare skin exposed. See more

The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day...
