Gadget Geeks is a British television series which airs on Sky1, and focuses on technology and gadgets. The series differs to the Channel 5 series The Gadget Show, in that it doesn't just feature commercially available technology, but also specially-built items designed by the in-house "geeks" (Tom Scott, Colin Furze, and Charles Yarnold).

The show was commissioned by Sky[1] in 2011. After the show was aired, it was not commissioned for another series.

Format[edit]

The show is divided in to two sections. One features gadgets and technology that are available commercially. These segments are presented by technology journalists Rory Reid, Ian Morris[2] and Emma Barnett.[3] The other is "builds" where a problem is solved by the three experts creating their own gadgets to help a member of the public with a specific challenge. The builds are presented by Colin Furze, Tom Scott and Charles Yarnold.
