Introduction

As virtual reality approaches mainstream consumer use, this has resulted in a revived intrigue in the research and innovation in the area. This vibrant development ecosystem has led to breakthroughs in sound, perception and visual-processing that take virtual reality to new dimensions. This book aims to meet the challenge of providing practitioners, researchers and institutions with discussions and examples on how to adopt these new methods and applications. The aim is to reach into research trends that are appearing, in order to show innovations and results that can be used to inspire and invigorate the virtual reality community. The topics covered in this book seek to cover new practices at all levels and modalities in immersive virtual reality, instigating readers to assimilate proposals that have been implemented and to replicate this knowledge in their institutions and researchers worldwide.

Objective

While Virtual Reality has been around for decades it has only recently started to gain momentum due to advancements in technologies - leading to a multitude of breakthroughs in research and innovation that have had a major impact on how we view and use virtual reality. Hence, this comprehensive and timely publication provides an essential reference source, disseminating knowledge on the available literature in the field of Virtual Reality, with the objective of showing applications in this area integrated with immersive techniques and affective theories and computer resources that are being used to support Virtual Reality methods.
