Surgeons Perform Better After Playing Wii

Ben sent this to me today. Seems just crazy enough to be true. :) A quote:

Surgeons perform better after warming up with Wii, says a recent study — and that study’s authors are now planning to develop surgery training software for Wii.

Two surgeons at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona have found that an hour of playing Wii’s motion-controlled games improves surgical residents’ score on a virtual surgery training tool by 48 percent.

Interesting read. Thanks, Ben!
