This title was edited by Dr. N. Raghavendra Rao, VIT University, India. Dr. Rao describes his interest in the book's topics saying, "Virtual reality essentially refers to the presentation of system generated data made available in such a way that those who use it perceive the information at their disposal as having similar or enhanced characteristics in business models. The line dividing simulated tasks and their real world counter parts is very thin. The ability to get real world perceptions interactively through systems explains the interest associated with three dimensional graphics in virtual reality. The synergy between real and simulated facts yields a real effectiveness. It will be more effective if the system and its artifacts are to be active rather than a passive display. The essential element of virtual reality is that interactive simulation with navigation among widely scattered heterogeneous data bases. This results in logical, numerical processing and wide range of visualization functions. Virtual reality concepts help to unlock the innovative thinking in enterprises for carrying out incremental and radical innovation in their organization. Virtual reality concepts help enterprises to accomplish their ambitious goals with new innovation improvement incentives. The new initiatives help generating alternative ideas by taking inputs from different sources and structuring through virtual reality applications. Virtual reality concepts will increase the chances of successfully diffusing knowledge, technology and process. It will definitely provide scope for innovation to emerge."
