Hi Huneybees,


Ever wanted to bungee off a suspending bridge into the valleys, scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge or give a talk like Steve Jobs in front of a huge crowd, but never had the courage to do? If your fear of heights and fear of public speaking is holding you back, check out Samsung's latest #BeFearless campaign. That might just help you conquer that fear and allow you to fulfill that dream of yours...

The #BeFearless campaign is an initiative targeted at helping millennials overcome their fears to unleash their fullest potential with the help of VR technology. This year’s campaign focuses on two common fears – fear of heights and fear of public speaking, and millennials will be able to participate in a series of trainings using Samsung’s #BeFearless VR app to help them overcome their fear.

VR is taking over the world and now it can put to another use other than gaming!
The #BeFearless VR app is develoed by Samsung together with medical professionals at the Yonsei University Gangnam Severance Hospital in South Korea with a success rate of nearly 90 percent was achieved in reducing 82 participants’ anxiety from public speaking and heights through the #BeFearless VR training.


There are a few situation levels with different difficulty levels in the app to help in our fear conquering process. See videos for the scenarios possible.
