Will smartwatches be the next big gaming platform?

Google Earth and Niantic Labs founder John Hanke tells Sophie Curtis why gaming could be the ‘killer app’ for smartwatches

“Gaming is always there. I’ve heard Steve Jobs initially thought that games were beneath his aspirations for the iPhone, but they ended being a huge driver of adoption,” said Mr Hanke.

“I think games are going to be one of the things that encourages early adopters to go out and grab these new devices and actually use them and get comfortable with them. And then many other apps will grow out of that.”
