CompuServe is launching what it claims is the world's first 3D shopping centre on the Internet, VRcade, which is being developed by virtual reality software specialist Superscape VR. To view it, visitors need the Viscape 3D Web browser plug-in, which costs #9.50 - and a CompuServe account. A 90-day free evaluation of Viscape will be available.
Visitors to the site, based on London's Piccadilly Circus, will be able to explore shops including Tesco, Waterstones, Virgin Magastore, Dixons and Interflora, and make their purchases by credit card.
