The ability to conduct experiments on virtual reality systems has become increasingly compelling as the world continues to migrate towards remote research, affecting the feasibility of conducting in-person studies with human participants. The Remote Experiment Datalogger (RED) Toolkit is an open-source library designed to simplify the administration of remote experiments requiring continuous real-time data collection. Our design consists of a REST server, implemented using the Flask framework, and a client API for transparent integration with multiple game engines. We foresee the RED Toolkit serving as a building block for the handling of future remote experiments across a multitude of circumstances.
