gnome.ly is a platform that lets you place GNOMEs in the real world—computer vision+geofenced tracking. It’s inspired, of course, by Amelie.

A GNOME is a [Grid Nested Omni-Metadata Entity]. Omni-metadata refers to a key that could link to (thus represent) anything—from a digital payment transactions to the expected text or image or video or 3D model. Each such entity is assigned or “nested to” a “grid” on an object in the real world (as tracked and defined by object identification and geofencing to distinguish between different commodity objects that may look the space but each possessing different spatial coordinates).

In a way, this is the generalized platform of DeadDropAR (place payments and bitcoins on real objects) and HoloYummy (photogrammetry: 2D photos-only to 3D model as hologram) as well as SnapShop, which recognizes commodity items that you can buy and even a very-old-LBS-project called KUBIKULO that lets you check into real locations in Foursquare-style reverse-geolocation to build voxel creations, Minecraft in AR.
