Jason and Suzi attempt to do something they never thought possible – present the show virtually. Suzi explores the possibilities offered by motion capture in creating an entirely computer-generated version of herself. But she soon discovers that there are too many limitations with the technology as it stands, so she assembles a team of boffins to help her develop it further – and do something never done on British TV before. Can she beam a virtual version of herself, which reacts to her every word and
movement, to the studio in real-time? Jason, on the other hand, explores the world of robotics and starts to wonder whether he could build an intelligent robotic version of himself to take his place on the Gadget Show sofa.

It is a journey that sees him explore the fascinating world of artificial intelligence, and he eventually builds a machine that both looks and sounds like him. As the studio filming day approaches, the presenters race against time to get their technological creations up and running. But, as the cameras roll, will virtual Suzi and robot Jason do their creators proud and
deliver a stellar performance?
