"Humanity goes offline. Survival goes on."
H Plus (stylized H+) is a Web Video Series produced by Bryan Singer, and created by John Cabrera and Cosimo De Tommaso.
One third of the world's population is implanted with a nanocomputer which connects users to the internet 24/7. When a virus infects the network, the world ends. Using Anachronic Order and many different points of view, the web series follows both the events after the world ends, and the seven years leading up to it.
It can be viewed on YouTube here.
This show provides examples of:
- Anachronic Order: The story jumps back and forth anywhere from seven years before to four years after the virus, using the back-and-forth to build on the main mystery of the series.
- Four Lines, All Waiting: Short 2-5 minute episodes + loads of characters + Anachronic Order = No idea what's going on. And that's even with annotations on the episodes to give some explanation as to what's going on.
- Nanomachines: People get connected to the internet 24/7 via a saline solution injection with nanotechnology.
- Transhuman: One of the issues that the web series looks at is transhumanism in the form of a microscopic computer implanted into a person's brain, networked 24/7, and what happens when that goes wrong.
