TV show producer Simon Cowell will join artist Will.i.am in the search for the “new Steve Jobs” in a reality show to be broadcast in the United States.
“We are working on a project called X Factor for technology – and it will be something out of this world,” explained Will.i.am to The Sun. He hopes the attraction will be able to reveal a new Steve Jobs or Bill Gates to the world of technology.
X Factor is a popular reality show that involves acting and singing by the participants, but the technology-oriented version has a different focus. “We are going to talk to young people and give them a platform to express themselves – be it through science or mathematics.”
Little information about the program has been announced. It is not yet known exactly what the format will be, nor when it should debut.
