LXer: How Half Life could save your life

Published at LXer:

Surprisingly, the answer could well be yes. At least if a bunch of computer science researchers at Durham University have anything to do with it. The group have taken the 3D game engine that powers the immersive Half Life 2 game and used it to develop a realistic virtual simulation of the university computer science department. More to the point, they have created a realistic fire drill simulator which might just help save a life or two.

[It is nice to see continued evidence of computer games being used to help people rather than the same old stories being rolled out by the mainstream media trying to convince us that all game developers are evil. - Jen]
