Will.i.am has announced that he and Simon Cowell are going to launch an “‘X-Factor’ for tech”, ie a TV show aiming to seek out the next big names in the world of technology. And then get them to Christmas number one. Possibly.

Speaking via video link at the Royal Television Society Digital World conference in London, Wired reports that the producer said: “Singing and performance create a couple of jobs, but this will create lots. It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves – whether that’s in science or mathematics”.
