Watch the first trailer for Bryan Singer's futuristic webseries H+, in which the population has ditched smart phones for brain implants. And of course, it all goes horribly wrong.
Here's a quick synopsis:
H+: The Digital Series takes viewers on a journey into an apocalyptic future where technology has begun to spiral out of control, a future where 33% of the world's population has retired its cell phones and laptops in favor of a stunning new device – an implanted computer system called H+.
This tiny tool allows the user's own mind and nervous system to be connected to the Internet 24 hours a day. But something else is coming… something dark and vicious… and within seconds, billions of people will be dead… opening the door to radical changes in the political and social landscape of the planet - prompting survivors to make sense of what went wrong.
No word yet on when the series is set to go online, but rumor has it, it will air by 2011. Fingers crossed for this one, the FX are pretty compelling. Let's hope the story works as well!
