Awesome Interactive iPad App

We’ve all heard the complaints from parents that lament how much their kids substitute screen time for physical play time. iPads are awesome entertainment and education devices, but only if what is being used on it has value.

If you have younger children that love using an iPad, take it to the next level with the system offered by the folks at Osmo.

What makes Osmo different is that it uses the iPad to encourage interaction with items in the physical world, so it’s a way to use what the kids love to expand their learning.

It’s a really interesting approach that uses a special stand and small mirror that goes over the front facing camera, which makes it possible for the app to see what’s going on in front of the display.

There are lots of different activities that it will encourage, such as Masterpiece, which allows your child to trace anything that is projected onto paper in front of the iPad.

Osmo could be helpful for parents that want to have their iPads do more than basic game play. Learn more at:
