New medical training app being developed by game developers for DARPA

Video and computer games are something that most children living in the developed world have been exposed to. From the early days of Super Mario on the Nintendo Entertainment System, to the engrossing, cinematic-like titles that are part of today’s game consoles and computers, gaming is something that is familiar to many. Because of this, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants to tap into this gaming expertise to apply the interactive techniques found in video games to create an educational app that can be used on mobile devices that will specifically teach medical first responders.
