Get to Know More about our vision
Collaboration is in Our Core
PHOBOS started as a project by US startup PsyTech. In 2015, PsyTech teamed up with PsicoTech from Argentina. Together we are conducting clinical research using cutting edge technology
Our research program is divided into 2 phases. Phase 1 (currently underway) is focused on anxiety activation in VR environments. Phase 2 will be centered around basic processes (memory, attention, perception) and will use VR, AR and mobile technology.
Even though we plan launch a paid version of PHOBOS in the furture, its code (minus commercial assets) is and will be FREE to use and modify as long as its usage is centered solely on mental health and due credit is given on research papers or publications.
Our goal is to interface with research and education institutions around the world providing them with our know how to develop research programs and college level courses focused on immersive technologies and psychology.
