About Us

By Kat Hannaford on at

Chances are you’ve heard of our bigger Yankee father Gizmodo, but didn’t know Gizmodo UK’s daddy-o dropped its seeds all over the world. There are currently nine other rascally Gizmodo kids running riot all over Europe, Japan, Australia and Brazil, and since September 2011, right here in the UK.

Gizmodo UK isn’t your average tech site. Sure, we love technology and gadgets, but like any good nerdlinger, we’re also interested in science and smart design. Everything around us has been influenced by these elements, and it’s our goal to tell the stories behind these inspiring products, and to keep you on your toes about what’s coming next.

Expect to see amazing architecture you’d trade your Wi-Fi connection for; spaceships that soar to new and unexplored solar systems; futuristic automobiles and oceanic vessels that would fluster even James Bond; military innovation and eyebrow-raising government farces, and of course, all manner of geek culture and toys.

Of course, we wouldn’t be the Giz you know (and hopefully love) if it wasn’t for our irreverent, oddball nature, so peppered amongst the above, you’ll also find stories of freaks of nature (of the human and non-human variety) and crazy happenings from around the world.

Without our fearless commenters though, we’d cease to exist. Just like Sherlock Holmes and Watson, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and, err, the Chuckle Brothers, we work better as a team. It’s your irrepressible wit and opinions that spur us on, and of course, your well-intentioned tips and intel that keeps Giz breaking news and creating scandal.

Now that’s all cleared up — we’ve just put the kettle on, who wants a brew?
