Issue editors: Yesha Sivan, Metaverse-Labs Ltd, Tel Aviv-Yaffo Academic College, Israel; Maged Kamel Boulos, University of Plymouth, Devon, UK; David Gefen, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, USA; Abhishek Kathuria, The University of Hong Kong

In this issue, we take a review lantern and shed some light on some of this field’s aspects. Clearly, we do not cover everything. We will often see shadows and not the full image. Ultimately, we hope to encourage further exploring of the field.
