‘Coding Jam’ uses musical blocks to teach kids programming concepts

Like the main Osmo system, Coding Jam uses a mirror peripheral over the user’s docked iPad so its camera can track kids interacting with the music tiles. These correlate with particular tones, and snapping modifiers (like “loop” or “play twice”) on them introduces concepts analogous to coding instructions.

Kids can layer these elements to create musical sequences, as well as watch the jams other Osmo users make through the app. The Coding Jam expansion kit costs $60 and requires the full Osmo base set to build off of.
