      Hey Dan.

      The video game will have a 3D model of the heart with lots of electrical waves going through it. (See an example in the videos here: http://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article/file?type=supplementary&id=info:doi/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005245.s030)

      The player will then “shoot” many times at the heart, trying to get the bad electrical waves to stop. I will be keeping a record of the games, so that I can look at the ones in which the player managed to stop the bad electrical waves and try to learn what the best way of doing this in real life is from these examples.

      Would you be interested in playing this game?
