Kings of the TV talent show Will.i.am and Simon Cowell are teaming up to find the next big technology entrepreneur to follow in the footsteps of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

In a project that we imagine is a bit like X Factor meets The Apprentice, Will.i.am told The Sun, 'We're working on a project called X Factor for tech — and it's going to be out of this world.'

The Black Eyed Peas front man added, "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."

The singer is a champion of future technologies, being a 'director of creative innovation' for Intel (which basically means he talks about how much he loves Ultrabook) and he recently created the first song to be transmitted from Mars to Earth.

Throw his enthusiasm in with Simon Cowell's expertise and pizzazz from The X Factor, American Idol and Britain's Got Talent - and bam! You've got yourself a show.

Keep your eyes peeled if you have a cracking gizmo up your sleeves. It could be you!
