Bradbury can't predict success

Jason Bradbury has admitted he can't predict the next big thing, despite his job presenting The Gadget Show.

The former stand-up comic is set to front a new series, Motor Morphers, described as "60 Minute Makeover for engineers".

Asked if he knew in advance which gadgets would catch on, he confessed: "My ego says yes, but the realist in me says there's still very much a random factor in the success or failure for a new idea, platform or gadget.

"Things come out of the blue and they take you by surprise - like that app, Draw Something, I would never have said that would be successful, but of course it was globally massive.

"I thought robots would have more impact on our lives than they do. I mean, they build our cars and operate on us, but they're not as prevalent in our daily lives as I thought they possibly would be.

"I want to say, 'Yes, I'm the great predictor, having seen all this tech I can predict the future', but the truth is I can't, and that's why it's exciting."

:: Jason Bradbury presents Motor Morphers, which begins on Monday, May 6, at 8pm on Channel 5.
