Can a Game Cure Spider Phobia?

May 30, 2013 - Virtually Free Ltd, a UK-based start-up, releases Phobia Free 1.01, an iPad/iPhone app featuring games and augmented reality to help overcome the fear of spiders. It uses exposure therapy in the form of interactive games with spiders. The objective of the game is to help spiders escape from common threats they face when they are in a house or a garden. The spiders are progressively more realistic ending with an augmented reality tarantula they can hold in their hands.
