Is this the return of arcade culture? Notion Theory, a virtual reality company based in Washington, D.C., has created the first ever VR arcade on the East Coast.  

For $30 an hour, you and your friends can play state-of-the-art video games and experience VR moments.

A VR gamespace

This VR arcade, called Notion VR,  has a "room-scale" VR gamespace equipped with sensors throughout the room, an $800 VR headset, high-end gaming PCs, motion controls and about 15 games to choose from.

More VR coming

There are several VR devices currently on the market and a few others being developed: HTC's Vive, Sony's Playstation VR, Oculus Rift (owned by Facebook), Samsung's Gear VR and Google's Daydream. 

Already looking for what's next

The gaming industry is an early adopter of VR, but some companies are already thinking about what's next for the technology, beyond gaming. VR applications are being developed for everything from medical practices to sports viewing.

Investment banking giant Goldman Sachs believes the VR and AR markets will reach $80 billion by 2025.
