So what exactly is CyberCook Taster? Well, it’s hard to describe. But it’s like a cookbook, mixed with a cooking show, mixed with a game. And the best part is, there’s no cleanup.
Waking up in a Dream Kitchen
When Cybercook Taster starts, you are immediately impressed with the beautiful environment. It’s like waking up in your dream kitchen in a dream apartment in the heart of a cosmopolitan European city.
Cookbook Class Game
The practical side of the app is to teach you how to cook. The demo featured a simple recipe for a shrimp stir-fry on rice.
I initially was skeptical about how they would pull off the controls and experience. But it was surprisingly intuitive to use. You just look at the ingredient you want to add, and tap.
It has a sliding timer indicating when to add which ingredients.
And when you finish, it shows you your completed dish and gives you a star rating.
Amazing Bouncing Fried VR Shrimp
You can also zoom in on whatever you are cooking.
I wasn’t expecting to be awed by fried shrimp, but there I was.
It takes food porn to a whole new level.
The Future of Cybercooking
This is a limited demo to introduce you to the app. But they say they will be offering much more content in the future, including various cookbooks and appliances.
