The pros and cons of VR technology and their impact on human behavior are intensively discussed (e.g., in the context of computer games). In Western countries the discussion is focusing on violent game content. A lot is already discussed on the harmful and negative effects of VR game-based technology on human behavior, therefore we decided to focus primarily on the positive effects of VR based technology. In this paper a first overview over positive effects of VR based technology on human… Expand

TLDR
Interfaces for an office, a laboratory, a kitchen and a public hallway are presented along with user studies suggesting that augmenting sensory feedback has the potential to simplify tasks and make them safer, while expanding the potential for interaction with everyday environments. Expand
A virtual reality approach to mindfulness skills training
TLDR
Although participants in the experimental condition experienced an increase in mindfulness, VR was not significantly more effective in facilitating mindfulness overall, although the VR condition was characterised by a significantly greater increase in decentring. Expand

Anxiety and Presence during VR Immersion: A Comparative Study of the Reactions of Phobic and Non-phobic Participants in Therapeutic Virtual Environments Derived from Computer Games
TLDR
It was found that anxiety could be induced in phobic participants by exposing them to phobogenic stimuli in therapeutic virtual environments derived from computer games (TVEDG), and group differences, correlations, and regression analyses indicate a synergistic relationship between presence and anxiety.
