Connected is a short film released on Motherboard. It stars Pamela Anderson as a spin Instructor who is struggling to come to terms with aging and the transformations that it brings. In order to do something about it, she visits an experimental treatment facility.

Transhumanist plot points

At one point Jackie (Pamela's character) is listening to a meditation track (voiced by Jane Fonda) and one of the things the voice says is; "All of us alive now will live forever"

At the Wellness spa, Jackie gets some kind of microchip implant that "connects" her to the others at the Spa (and maybe more). It's described as "Wi-Fi" by the young woman who acts as Jackie's catalyst. At this point thoughts, bank account numbers and various other information is shown on a screen, signifying the connected nature.

The concept that Connected utilises may be likened to that of a Brain Net or something similar.

Technology Featured

At first glance, the technology used for the live exercise classes may seem to be a future tech idea, but it's not, the technology already exists and is made by Peloton.
