I found the video AMAZINGLY interesting (from the viewpoint of a mother whose son is still struggling with this) and inspiring (from the viewpoint of a writer/teacher with learning disabilities that has often thought the new world needed video game styled educational programs. If I only wrote code! I can think em up but I can't create em!
