Using VR to Address the Fear of Water #virtualreality

Interesting article from VRScout that highlights yet another application for virtual reality:

Exposure therapy can be a useful tool to address fears, which we recently saw used in Samsung Nordic’s Gear VR campaign that put individuals face to face with their fear of spiders.

Psychologist Philip Lindner tells viewers in the campaign video, “Shorter exposure can help people experience fun things they’ve previously missed out on, and create motivation to change.”
