So yesterday my cousin sent me a link to this new iPad app that’s coming out soon. It’s called Osmo and it uses the camera on the iPad for kids to use real objects to compete puzzles and other games. It looks really cool! And it seems to come with all sorts of educational type real life resources that kids can use as a part of the app.
It’s blurb is… “There’s digital gaming. There’s real world fun. And then there’s Osmo, a magical experience that merges the real and virtual worlds to defy the boundaries of play.”
I feel like this could be a great app for early childhood students and could open the doors for many different games that mix technology with physical objects.
Check out the video and let me know what you think of this creative app!
