Video games already make a game out of war, but can technology work both ways, making war more like a video game.
The app, by Textron Systems, shows a top-down map of friendly and hostile locations, including where soldiers are at any given time. A commander can then have an overall view of what's going on in the field in a distinctly video game sort of way.
Unfortunately, there's no option for building missile launchers or selecting all units in a big rectangle to give them all the same order at once, but hey, there's still time yet.
