Innovative design MA student Lee Wei Chen from Kingston University has created a game concept that as you play will wash your clothes. The idea came to Chen when she realised that playing video games wasn’t really providing her with skills in the real world. ‘I realised that the skills I had developed in the virtual world were useless in the real world.
