Source: Burning Chrome (Fragments of a hologram Rose), Page: 52

Parker saw his first ASP unit in a Texas shantytown called Judy's Jungle. It was a massive console in cheap plastic chrome. A ten dollar bill fed into the slot bought you five minutes of free-fall gymnastics in a Swiss orbital spa, trampolining through twenty metre perihelions with a sixteen year old Vogue model.

Our Thoughts on this Quote

ASP - Apparent Sensory Perception is Gibson's original term for what became known as Sim Stim in later works.

SimStim; literally Simulated Stimulation, viewing the world through another person's eyes, hearing with their ears, feeling with their skin, smelling with their nose. Full sensory stimulation of another person, total passivity.

With it you literally slip into another person's sensory skin. Feeling the bodily sensations, as a kind of pre recording, that you can loop over and over again; seeing through their eyes, feeling with their body, smelling through their nose...

It is a related concept to the neural jack, and like the jack, is very plausible. It shares the same root technologies with interactive sensory control - a field beginning to be realised now.
