Los Angeles: Singer Will.i.am and ‘The X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell have reportedly joined hands to make a show on nerds and tech freaks.

Will, 37, was planning this show for some time.

"We`re working on a project called `X Factor for Tech` and it`s going to be out of this world. It`s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves - whether that`s in science or mathematics," a website has quoted Will as saying.

Will, who met Cowell recently over dinner, says the show will create opportunities for people.

"Simon`s cool. We had a wicked dinner a couple of weeks ago and it was very nice. Singing and performance create a couple of jobs. But this will create lots," he said.
