Osmo is an iPad gaming accessory that lets you interact with real people and objects as part of the game play. The system consists of reflector that snaps over your device’s camera and a base (that works with iPad mini and iPad 2), and games which are available through the AppStore. This system turns any surface in front of the device into a playing field. There are three games currently available: Tangram, where youhave to arrange puzzle pieces to match what’s shown on screen, Words, a guess-and-spell game using real-life letters, and Newton.
The most intriguing one is Newton, as this game requires you to draw or use real objects to guide falling balls towards their targeted zones. Sounds like fun for the whole family! Pre-order Osmo here.
