Autek - Immersive Technology to help overcome anxiety

Virtual tours, video walk through, augmented and virtual reality.  

What’s it like? is conceived, created and tested by those living with anxiety, who identified the need. Meaning it will make genuine change for these peoples' lives.

The approach is a supported, step-by-step experience gradually increasing the level of immersion to ensure that anxiety is managed and that the goal of attendance is achieved.  And that over time users develop new skills of managing anxiety through technology.
