The Osmo Gaming System offers interactive games that help make learning fun. The games encourage creative thinking and bridge the physical and digital worlds. The system is designed to work with iPad 2 and later models. It also works with all versions of iPad Mini and iPad Air. You get a simple reflector that fits over you iPad camera and also a stand for your IPad so that it sets upright. The reflector allows the system to see the game actions and responses of the player which happen in front of the iPad on a table. Down load the apps and your all set! After the apps are downloaded you no longer need the online connection so you can play anywhere.

The creators of the Osmo Gaming System have received excellent reviews and awards from USA Today, Forbes, Yahoo! and the Wall Street Journal. The gaming system was included in Time magazine’s top inventions of 2014. The Osmo startup was founded by Pramod Sharma and Jerome Scholler. They noticed the kids are becoming more and more glued to screens and disengaged from the world. I can definitely vouch for this! My son would rather play video games or watch his favorite videos than almost anything else. Pramod and Scholler set out to design fun and educational games that bring together the digital world and the real world.
