Palo Alto, Calif. – WEBWIRE

Osmo, the award-winning company changing the way children play and learn, today announces that it has been named one of Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Education. This exclusive annual editorial list honors the leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in nimble business and impactful innovation.

In three short years, Osmo has gone from crowdfunding to leading a new play movement. At the heart of the company’s innovation is its Reflective Artificial Intelligence, which turns the physical space in front of an iPad into a controller for the digital screen. Osmo fuses decades of research behind the power of tangible play for the development of kids with the fun and imaginative possibilities of technology. 

“At the core of everything we do at Osmo is fun; if something isn’t fun it’s just not going to work,” explained Pramod Sharma, CEO and cofounder of Osmo. “Regarding innovation, we’ve only just begun. We’re incredibly excited to share much more from the inventive and creative minds at Osmo in 2017 and beyond.”

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies is one of the most significant and highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. To produce the 2017 list, Fast Company reporters surveyed thousands of enterprises across the globe to identify the most notable innovations of the year and trace the impact of those initiatives on business, industry, and the larger culture.

Osmo is sold in Apple Stores worldwide and has eight different experiences that teach everything from computer science, to drawing, to entrepreneurship to open-ended creative imagining.
