Osmo Masterpiece and The Primal Sketch

We love using Osmo in our office.  It is proving to be everything I hoped it would be when we first ordered it.  Here is a brief explanation for how Osmo works.  You can also watch this cute YouTube video showing Osmo in action:

Osmo has just released Masterpiece, a very clever new free download for the iPad that will add a new dimension to eye-hand for drawing readiness.

This reminds me in a way of Marr’s primal sketch model.

In essence, Osmo deconstructs a real object or image into its primal sketch, and allows the child to reconstruct or sketch it back to the original.  How fun!
