Description: Welcome to the IKEA Virtual Reality kitchen experience, where you can make some virtual pancakes. Before you start, you can choose between bright or dark cabinet fronts. Our IKEA kitchen specialist will guide you through some of the key aspects of a well-planned kitchen. And lookout for the instructions that will help you to prepare those perfect pancakes. At the end, you can see how the kitchen feels from a child’s perspective while you set the table. Ready for a pancake party? As you master the art of perfect pancakes, why not try to cook pancakes using four pans at the same time?
Review: Love them or not, you do have to give credit to IKEA for embracing VR technology as a whole. And you don’t need me to tell you that ‘IKEA VR Pancake Kitchen’ is little more than an advert for IKEA themselves. As always with free apps and games the question is, is this worth a download? I feel the answer is yes. While it only lasts for 15 minutes if you mess about a bit and throw the pancakes about and generally have some fun you can eke out some laughs here. It’s well made and looks pretty good. Sure it’s an interactive advert, but it is also something fun to mess about with.
