No Shy, Just Talk! / VR system design

No Shy, Just Talk!

We design a system to provide VR exposure therapy for people with social phobia. The system is composed of a VR application and a smart watch. The VR application creates immersive experience of social activities such as meeting in the company, job interview, dating and etc. The user has to participate these social activities and communicate with other people in the virtual scene. The system also educates the user to respond appropriately by popping up hints , so as to alleviate symptoms of social fear.
