A brainchild of former Google employee Pramod Sharma (see pic), who began an entertainment start-up called Tangible Play in California, the $99 (Rs 590) device called ‘Osmo’ works in a sophisticated yet remarkably simple way.
“Osmo extends gameplay beyond the screen, changing the space in front of a tablet into an interactive environment that turns any object into a digitally connected game piece,” Sharma emphasised.
