Thanks for bringing this awesome Techcrunch Article to Medium. I wonder why aren’t we discussing this topic. Many of us knowingly or unknowingly are suffering from some kind of stress.

Many of Research Havens are actively working on using Virtual Reality to help cure Autism and related disorders.

We tried our very best to bring VR Games, Movies and what not to be accessible to the masses. They’ll come eventually but projects like these need to be out first. Treatments like these need to be Accessible and Affordable very soon.
