Distract VR

A design project prototype virtual reality system designed to promote relaxation for those suffering from stress or anxiety, whilst taking into account that many users do not relax in the same way. Through user research into how different people relax, the design became based around two categories: meditation and distraction. "This project was formed on the basis that VR has many benefits in the medical world, especially now that simulations are becoming so realistic it is sometimes hard to draw the line between the real world and the VR one. It has often been used to treat phobias through exposure, and I would like to see it used more often in a relaxation sense."
