Osmo Game System – A Manipulative Gaming System for the iPad!

In July, 2014 a blog post featured the  development of the Osmo Game System using tangible tangram pieces and letter tiles that interact with apps on the iPad.

The Osmo Game System is available for iPad 2 and newer and the iPad Mini. With manipulative letter tiles and tangram pieces, this educational game system provides a hands on activity with all the interactivity of visual and auditory feedback afforded by the tablet computing. Once the gaming system is purchased, three apps are available from the iTunes store for free that work solidly out of the box.

So how does this work? Here is a video on how the Osmo Gaming System works:

Set up and use of the Osmo Gaming System was easy and successful out of the box. You will need to download the free apps from iTunes prior to use. New games are being developed by the Osmo creators. More information about the development of the gaming system and new games being created visit the Play Osmo website. The Osmo Gaming System can be purchased on Amazon.com
