Osmo is an award-winning game system that will change the way your child interacts with the iPad by opening it up to hands-on play.
What do I need to use Osmo?
You just need an iPad with a camera. Osmo is compatible with: iPad 2, iPad (3rd Generation), iPad (4th Generation), iPad Mini, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
We are exploring support for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but there are no plans for the near future. Osmo does not work with Android-based tablets.
The Genius Kit Games
The Genius Kit includes five games, Words, Tangram, Numbers, Masterpiece and Newton. The kit includes a white iPad stand and a red reflector for the iPad camera, two sets of game pieces (two complete alphabet letter tile sets and wood tangram shapes), plus a set of high-quality number and dot tiles for the Numbers game. Masterpiece and Newton don’t require any pieces. All of these apps are available to download from the App Store free of charge but you need the Osmo Game System (base + reflector) to play them.
Real Tangram pieces, full digital experienceArrange tangible puzzle pieces into matching on-screen shapes. Play with a friend or challenge yourself to more advanced levels as your handy-work lights up with each victory.
The game Tangram has been around for almost a thousand years, but Osmo reinvents this classic using a fully interactive video experience. With visual and audio feedback, multiple levels of difficulty, achievements and more.
Be the first to guess and spell out the on-screen hidden word by tossing down real-life letters faster than your friends. A related picture gives the clue.
Words comes with over 150 default puzzle images, but if you guess your way through those it’s easy to log on to myOsmo and download new albums created by the community. This added content can extend your playtime endlessly!
Masterpiece leverages Osmo to turn your iPad into a drawing tool. With Masterpiece you’ll get the proportion and perspective of your drawing exactly right. The only limit of what you can draw is your imagination!
Take a picture of anything you want, be it a friend, a toy or anything online. Masterpiece will transform it into simple outlines so you can draw it to perfection.
Kids love to draw, but with the rise of smartphones and iPads, they increasingly dismiss pen and paper. With Masterpiece kids can combine their love of technology and drawing, while learning useful skills.
Kids arrange physical tiles, including dots and digits, to make numbers and complete levels. Add by putting more tiles, subtract by removing tiles and multiply by connecting tiles together. Experimenting becomes fast and intuitive.
Kids play math without the pressure of time or the fear that they’ll get the wrong answer. Osmo’s real-time feedback lets kids learn through experimentation in a stress-free environment.
Use your creative noggin and inventive objects like a hand-drawn basket, grandma’s glasses, dad’s keys, or anything around you to guide falling on-screen balls into targeted zones.
The more you succeed, the harder it gets! You can use simple strategies in the beginning, but as you progress Newton will challenge you with bouncing balls, accelerating platforms and fans that force you to think in new ways!
Newton will use whatever you place on the playing field! Start with a pen and paper, but also try objects like Osmo Tangram pieces or toys. There is no limit to how you can solve Newton levels, so use your imagination to expand the way you play.
