Hybrid Earth is a scenario based on the idea that, in a near future, smartphones will be augmented reality goggles with embedded cameras. These many geolocated cameras and other sensors help in building a mirror world, a realtime copy of our physical world. The mirror world is populated with data, avatars and bots that are visible through the augmented reality goggles. A world this size –as big as the real world and the web combined– can only be build with the contribution of everyone on top of an open and scalable infrastructure.
Find more about this infrastructure in our poster and stream API draft documentation. Also, some algorithms are described in this article.
