Edge tech, usage and developments in Virtual Worlds. A collection of 5 papers which suggest new angles and unique points of view, is presented in this Edge issue. Each of these five papers pushes the boundaries of the disciplines in a different way. Together, they demonstrate the dual value of the JVWR, first as a stage to explore the future of virtual worlds (defined broadly,) and then help to shape the future of real worlds.
