Advances in the field of 3D graphics and the increase in computing power, the real-time visual rendering of a virtual world is possible in real world. Virtual reality provides new techniques of visualization, composing on the strengths of visual representations. In some instances, virtual reality can provide more accurately the detailing of some features, processes, and so forth than by other means, which allows it to perform extreme close-up examination of an object, observation from a great distance, and examination of areas and events unavailable by other means. In this paper, we propose and develop virtual rendering of phobias using Unity and Google Cardboard. A dedicated virtual environment is programmed within which a user can interact with the environment. This interaction is called as Haptic Interaction. Using this technique it is believed that the phobias could be treated.
