Play With Fear
Play With Fear

There is always something which children scare of, such as darkness and high place. If they didn’t let anybody know about their fears, fears will be lasted and kept in their mind. Moreover, their bedtime routine and sleeping habits will be deeply impacted. “Play With Fear” is a VR device and can characterize the fears as fictitious characters. For example, darkness is a gentle mammoth and acrophobia is an invisible dependable giant. Also, because of the companionship of the virtual playmates, children can realize the fears and make friend with them. Hence, children can be easier to deal with the fears and feel more comfortable in reality.
