Xbox for Stroke Rehabilitation

I saw that one on slashdot (link to the discussion).
“Using an Xbox modified to run Linux, researchers [at Rutgers University in New Jersey] have developed virtual reality hand exercises for rehabilitating stroke patients. An inexpensive glove controller is used to interact with the Xbox. The hardware cost is a tenth of a comparable commercial hand rehabilitation system, leading to the possibility of deployment in patients’ homes.” (slashdot summary)
