News Item: Rocksmith is a new video game which trumps Guitar Hero by teaching the player how to play real music on a real guitar. This game is one more example of a growing assortment of software which harness the accelerated learning environment of video games to allow players to develop skills which can then be used in the world outside the game. Many futurists believe (and your host is one of them) that in the years and decades to come the variety of skills which will be learned in this way will become vast and uncountable.
