Osmo – the system that lets you combine the digital world with the real one

Osmo in use

One of the most common complaints that parents have about “kids these days” is that they spend too much time in front of screens. Playing video games, using apps on their phones, not connecting with the real world. Osmo is a system that brings the digital world into the real world for children.

Osmo consists of three parts. A reflector that snaps to the top of the second part, the iPad, which then sits in part number three, the base. The system uses a specially designed mirror that helps translate what the kids (or you, it’s geared for all ages) do from the real world to the digital one. The three games are Tangram, Newton, and Words. Both Tangram and Words come with pieces that you use to interact with the game but the Newton game lets you use whatever you want. Go crazy, you’re only confined by your own imagination.

Right now this is an iOS system only but it does work with all the latest iPad models. The Osmo is $79.99.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
