Cool little story over on C|Net called “Video game therapy–a new frontier” (Link). I usually talk about blurring lines between work and play, but here there are blurring lines between healing and playing. I guess maybe healing is really just another form of working. Anyway, this reminds me of other stories, most especially those concerning Iraq war veterans using videogames to deal with their trauma.
Always nice to read articles where technology, once considered pretty useless by so many (just the way home computers were generally considered useless by the public in the early 80’s), winds up having such a wonderful impact. Good read for the weekend.
