Osmo, is a magical experience that merges the real and virtual worlds to defy the boundaries of play.

The system comes in two parts; a stand for your iPad and a red lozenge to reflect the camera down towards the table. Then you can play games where the camera recognizes small objects that you put in front of the iPad. A mobile app directs the kids to play collaborative games that make use of both the screen and physical objects.

The device will launch with three games: Tangram, Newton and Words. Tangram is an iPad-enabled version of the Chinese game with the same name, in which players form an object with colorful wooden shapes. Newton combines drawing lines and shapes on paper in front of the iPad to direct falling balls towards a target. Words is a hangman-like puzzle game where players compete against each other to guess a word using letter tiles.

The Osmo game system includes the Osmo kit, words tiles, wooden tangram shapes, and free games are available on the AppStore.
