Stephen Fry and Jonathan Ross road-test a revolutionary new scooter – video

Watch the two TV personalities tearing around a London park in a preview clip from Stephen Fry: Gadget Man on Channel 4


Stephen Fry and Jonathan Ross might both be sporting donnish salt-and-pepper beards, but that doesn’t mean they’re acting like grown-ups…


In this teaser for the first episode of Stephen Fry: Gadget Man, the two tech-mad TV personalities road-test a couple of radical new motorised scooters, which can travel at up to 18mph.

Paying absolutely no heed to numerous “no cycling” signs Fry and Wossy tear it up around a London park to the amazement of several camera-toting tourists:

For his new series, Fry’s trying out cutting edge gadgets and gizmos from around the world and exploring the ways in which technology is changing our lives.


The first instalment of Stephen Fry: Gadget Man sees Fry examining ways of jazzing up the daily commute and looking at inventions including the world’s smallest electric car, a very unusual bicycle and a 3D headset. Watch it tonight on Channel 4 at 8:30pm.
