The Expertise unit Psychology, Technology & Society of Thomas More University of Applied Sciences recently recorded a number of locations of variable height in 360° VR video. The two Antwerp campuses, Sanderus and National, of Thomas More University of Applied Sciences, served as decors. The 13 available locations were not chosen randomly: they were selected in the context of an internal pilot study.
Students Hans Vermeulen (internship) and Celine Moeskops (bachelor dissertation) explored how existing exposure therapy for fear of heights could by enrichened by low threshold 360° VR video scenes. These videos are freely available on the expertise unit's YouTube channel. Each video includes a brief description, a height indication and an (estimated) indication of the level of difficulty. The goal is to expand this channel in the future and to also focus on how these and other, additional videos can be used as meaningful additions to the treatment of phobias. You can view the different scenes in different ways: via PC or smartphone, via Google Cardboard, or via Samsung Gear VR.
