In your letter dated June 22, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Nuby Manufacturing Co.

The vest weighs 2.3 lbs, 3/4 of which is allocated to the electronics including the PC board and vibrations units. This virtual reality vest is considered an accessory to the video game it is designed to be used with and is classified in the provision covering the Play Station video game. The vest will be returned at your request.

The applicable subheading for the Reality Vest will be 9504.10.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Articles for arcade, table or parlor games...: Video games of a kind used with a television receiver and part and accessories thereof, Parts and accessories."
