He is the Human Calculator: he sees numbers and patterns everywhere; allowing him to visually see advanced mathematical calculations instantly. Because of this ability, Flansburg sees numbers everywhere; numbers the rest of us can't see. Each episode of the new series follows Flansburg as he actively investigates the secret codes and patterns that are hidden in plain sight.. Human Calculator combines scientific investigations along with great stories from history which together take viewers on a journey to reveal a hidden world that most of us never knew existed, but one that completely controls our lives.
