Osmo Recognized by ‘AI Breakthrough Awards’ for Its Reflective AI and Hands-On Tech in Education

The accolade recognizes Osmo’s world-class AI that powers the hands-on learning and play experience used in 1 in 3 elementary schools in the U.S.


Today,  Osmo’s proprietary “Reflective AI” was recognized for being at the heart of a breakthrough in hands-on learning and play experience by winning the Best AI-based Solution for Education Award. Presented by the AI Breakthrough Awards, this acknowledgment showcases the power of technology to combine the time-tested value of hands-on play with the limitless potential of the digital world. 

Co-founded by ex-Google engineers, Osmo’s proprietary tech infuses the iPad and iPhone with powerful Reflective AI that allows the camera to “see” what’s in front of it and blends the worlds of digital and physical play together in a magical, compelling way. A unique base and clip-on reflector help to focus the AI computer vision on physical game pieces that manipulate on-screen action so kids can learn and enjoy adventures by drawing or moving tiles and blocks to control the digital world.

Embraced by a third of US elementary schools and over half a million households, Osmo’s success stems from creating its own set of machine-learning databases that enable the camera to become a sophisticated interface that allows kids to use their hands as input devices. 

This recognition marks the first time that the technology powering Osmo’s physical-meets-digital new play movement has earned a spot on the ABA’s annual award list.  

“Artificial intelligence allows us to move technology out of the way so children can use their most powerful learning and playing tools - their hands,” observed Pramod Sharma, CEO and co-founder of Osmo. “For us, it’s really about using the best technology to give kids those fun, hands-on experiences that teach things like spelling and coding and even running your own pizza shop.”

The company was keenly selected from over 2,500 nominations coming in from all over the world for the AI Breakthrough Awards. The immersive list of companies that earned wins in other categories includes Google, Qualcomm, NVIDIA, IBM -- some of the leading companies in the artificial intelligence market.

The Play System has been lauded by many industry awards, recently winning the CB Insights AI 100 Award, the Parents Choice Award, has been awarded as one of Time’s Best Inventions and in 2017 was named one of the most innovative companies by Fast Company.
