RPI Advanced Technology Group Inc of San Francisco, California has a virtual reality arcade pod system: long-distance networked virtual reality rides enable users to experience three-dimensional stereoscopic imagery, sound and motion, turn their heads to look around the digital world, view photorealistic texture maps, and interact with other users simultaneously, using RPI’s Head Mounted Sensory Interface, a glasses-like device with high resolution video screens and three-dimensional sound built inside. Any RPI system can run any game or experience from other software suppliers. Windows personal computer, Unix and hybrid systems are now available. The modular systems can be configured in size from entire facilities layouts to single pods in existing amusement centres. The rides can network worldwide via the ImagiNET telecommunications system. Prices from $8,000.
