Sorry we’ve been silent for a while. Our “real jobs” has been keeping us away. In any event, an occurrence on Christmas Day reminded me of the progress that video games have made in the last 30 years. We can now injure ourselves running and jumping while playing video games just like we can running and jumping outside. I was playing Kinect Sports with my niece and my brother says to me “careful, I pulled a calf the first time I played.” My brother is older than me, so surely I will be fine, I though. Well as I landed from jumping over the last hurdle… pop! I TORE my calf muscle. Yes… ouch! Lesson learned. But this did remind me that video games have become much more sophisticated, developed, and viable for use in teaching real-life situations. I love my job.
