Osmo is a first of its kind play/learning system for the iPad. Osmo has a little device that projects the front facing camera down to your desktop. Using blocks, letter tiles and other objects you can interact with the apps that Osmo offers for free.
Currently Osmo is $79 and will ship for free.
This might be something we might want to purchase for the younger grades.
Watch the video below.
Arrange tangible puzzle pieces into matching on‑screen shapes. Play with a friend or challenge yourself to more advanced levels as your handy‑work lights up with each victory.
Be the first to guess and spell out the on‑screen hidden word by tossing down real‑life letters faster than your friends. A related picture gives the clue.
Use your creative noggin and inventive objects like a hand‑drawn basket, grandma's glasses, dad's keys, or anything around you to guide falling on‑screen balls into targeted zones.
