if can identify an object with glass by looking at... you should be able to re-print it as well with 3D printing... some folks are already working on the first stages of this using hand drawn sketches and octrees... http://www.3dprinterworld.com/article/creating-3d-printable-models-from-hand-drawn-sketches

This quote says nothing to contrary. You are not reading the quote properly and are making an argument where none exists. To explain it more clearly:
The quote is not excluding Third World countries they can take computerized designs and make physical things as well. Another way to read it: digital objects and physical objects are one and same now that bits can be turned into atoms with 3D printing. "Important difference" is making a comparison between computerized design and real objects. There is is no geo-political reference conveyed here.

the source code (python) is available to let any manufacturer (or any institution) write an image recognition program for Glass... here it is: https://github.com/mtconnect/google_glass  ... it uses the kooba.com api for image recognition (Kooba was bought Qualcoom the new API can be seen here https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/api/main ) . This was put into development by ITAMCO in July 2014... http://www.itamco.com/  It would be interesting to see this put to use with Space Glasses ( https://www.spaceglasses.com/ ) since the UI is holographic.
