Osmo and Disney make AI magic

News Image

Osmo have teamed up with Disney to launch a new AI powered kit for children.

Osmo makes hands-on learning games in which players use objects in the real world to interact with the digital world shown on their iPad or Fire tablets.

The AI technology that powers Osmo, brings kids’ drawings to life in Frozen 2 stories featuring Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and all their other favourite characters.

Osmo Super Studio combines two things children love - drawing and Disney! Drawing is a critical childhood activity linked to social and emotional development, and is also a way to ignite the imagination and create new worlds with beloved friends.

Osmo’s proprietary reflective AI technology, that allows iPad cameras to 'see' physical objects in front of it, is at the heart of this innovative new drawing experience that gives kids a blank canvas to express themselves through story and by drawing their favourite Disney characters.

Osmo offer games for a wide range of academic subjects, including:

  • Coding (Coding Awbie, Coding Jam, Coding Duo)
  • Math (Numbers, Pizza Co.)
  • Drawing (Monster, Super Studio, Masterpiece)
  • Spelling (Words)
  • Fundamentals of Physics (Newton)
  • Spatial relational skills (Tangram)
  • World geography (Detective Agency)

To play any Osmo game, you will need a compatible device that’s connected to the internet. Osmo works with most iPads and Amazon Fire tablets.

You also need the appropriate Osmo base and red reflector for your device. Every Osmo kit includes the Osmo Base and Reflector for either iPad or Amazon Fire tablet. Bases and reflectors for iPad and Amazon Fire tablets are available for purchase in the Osmo store.
