Inner Critic

AI CogAssessmentVR

Virtual Reality (VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) can transform the way in which mental health assessments are done. Now a very tedious, extensive process filling out questionnaires by hand which can lead to inaccurate results. We want to transform them into a 3D stories/visual with audio along with biometric sensors to detect heart rate, eye movement, pulse, and other indicators that can be used in the diagnostic process.

Learning to Include Everyone


This is an embodiment and self-compassion VR platform initially designed for inner child work and to aid in the resolution of interpersonal relationships. Users select scenarios of characters in a house setting: male-female; child-parents; teenager-mother; etc. and dialog with the characters by embodying a character, through roleplay to uncover issues or resolve past feelings. RolePlayVR is an embodiment platform applicable for a wide variety of roleplaying scenarios.

Inner Critic

Self Compassion/"Inner Critic" App

"Inner Critic" is a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) exercise adapted for virtual reality and designed to be equal parts insightful and playful. In this experience, you face your inner critic through a mirror and have the opportunity to self-soothe by catching self-affirming messages packaged in beautiful bubbles sent to you by a magical fairy. The bubbles contain verbal gifts of positivity. You then have the opportunity to pay your new skills forward and help others with their respective inner critics and offer them the guidance that was offered you.

Starfish/Prosocial Inclusion App

The StarfishVR application is a prosocial inclusion app. Each starfish tribe asks the user to hear their story, learn their culture, and eventually return them back to their home in the sea. Built and developed by Sherry Huai-Hsuan Shih, Justin Pass, and RJ Canonigo, the app engages the user with a touching story that has you helping these adorable creatures out of their tough situation and back to their place of belonging. Using psychological themes of altruism and dispelling biases, this app encourages the hopeful spirit in all of us that knows inherently that every being counts equally.
