How to Automate the Digitalization of the World

TweetOne of the key components to true AR is turning world objects into digital ones.  The slow way to accomplish this is to get an army of volunteers to manually create the digital architecture piece-by-piece.  Much like the first genome, it’s going to take awhile.  However, if the process can be automated, then interesting events start …
