What is Osmo?
Osmo is a gaming device that connects to any iPad. Osmo transforms the physical space in front of a tablet and brings actual reality into digital gaming while encouraging core life skills. The games can be played by the whole family, anywhere, and on any surface - with no need for wifi or a battery and instinctively brings people together, as the first truly multi-generational connected gaming device.

Osmo garnered international attention, in part, thanks to the innovative way it allows kids to play outside the screen and expand their creative thinking and social engagement while using a tablet. With its proprietary Reflective Artificial Intelligence technology pioneered by the Ex-Googlers and young parents out of Stanford, Osmo is continuing its effort to spread a new Play Movement. Schools and teachers are already on board, with many pre-ordering Osmo for their classrooms. Osmo is even reaching international levels with over 20% of orders purchased outside of the US.
“We’ve had tremendous support and incredible demand from the community, says Pramod Sharma, CEO and co-founder of Osmo. “In an effort to keep Osmo an engaging part of family entertainment for years to come and to show our gratitude for early support, we wanted to extend more features and offerings.”
The Osmo set comes with three games; Newton, Words, and Tangram built from the ground up and designed for children ages 6-12. The device will retail for $99, but presale backers will get discount pricing starting at $49 (limited availability). Special discounts include $5 off for every friend you refer. Osmo is expected to start shipping late summer 2014 - join the Play Movement!
