Watch the video on how the Osmo Coding works:
“It’s never been more important to provide new ways for our kids to play and learn with their hands. As a father myself, I know how crucial it is to a child’s development,” stated Pramod Sharma, Osmo’s CEO and co-founder. “We founded this company to provide an alternative to the false dichotomy of tech and traditional play. We’re proud to bring families and teachers the tools they need to encourage fun play that will nourish their kids’ bodies and minds.”
Pediatric research shows that screen time alone does not give kids the tools for success, with more and more students showing weakening motor skills, and the inability to hold a pencil properly. Without losing the crucial hands-on play kids need for proper development, Osmo has leveraged its proprietary Reflective AI technology, these experiences give kids greater access to explore creativity, entrepreneurial and STEM, more alongside traditional experiences like spelling, math and physics.

Osmo Base and Reflector for iPad, 31 tangible coding blocks including; Walk, Jump, Hand, Magic, Rest, Quantifiers (Numbers), Repeat, Subroutines, Stackable storage for game pieces, 3 Game Apps: Coding Awbie, Coding Jam and Coding Duo.
What is Osmo?
Osmo’s proprietary ‘Reflective AI’ technology allows an iPad, iPhone or Amazon Fire camera to “see” physical objects in front of it. This first-of-its-kind technology gives kids a blank canvas to express themselves and learn through hands-on play. The company’s physical-to-digital experiences, approach to thoughtful design and the elegant, age-appropriate use of technology has elevated Osmo’s brand to Apple-like status with a faithful following among teachers and parents.
Osmo was founded by parents and former Google engineers to create fun and nutritious play experiences designed specifically to bring more hands-on play opportunities for both boys and girls. The company’s unique approach has garnered attention from toy and education behemoths such as Mattel, Sesame Ventures and Houghton Mifflin through strategic investments to invigorate iconic products for today’s family and classroom.
Osmo has received several awards: Best AI-based Solution for Education Award for its proprietary Reflective AI technology. Named as one of Time Magazine’s “25 Best Inventions” to mention a few.
