    Fear has a big impact on our feelings and behavior, it's one of the basics for survival. Excessive fear can lead to phobias, which can effect our everyday life. It's hard to face your fear, also beacuse it can lead to dangerous situations. The main subject of this thesis is acrophobia (fear of heights), its effect on people and facing it in a controlled environment with the help of technology. The goal is to help the user with a controlled environment, where he can face the fears without danger. We look at similar solutions and retrieve usefull information. We get to know the technologies used for building the solution. We take a look at the development process. We test the solution on a test group. At the end we summarize the answers from the users. The work is thus based on a qualitative analysis of the answers.
