1. A method for creating a physical object by a child and processing the physical object to convert the physical object into a virtual object for use on a computing device, the method comprising:
providing a tangible body, including a surface region;
providing a plurality of features for the surface region of the body;
assembling, by a user, the plurality of features onto the body to form a customized tangible body including the features, each of the features being configured onto a portion of the tangible body in a designated spatial configuration on the portion of the tangible body;
aligning the customized tangible body, by the user, to an image capturing region of an image capturing device, the image capturing device being coupled to a computing device;
capturing an image of the customized tangible body using the image capturing device in a pixel domain;
processing the image in the pixel domain to convert the image in the pixel domain into a portable image file;
processing the portable image file using an AI inference engine to output at least a character type of the tangible body, a type of each of the features, a spatial location of each of the features, and a color of each of the features, each of which defines a phenotype of the customized tangible body;
storing information associated with the character type, type of each of the features, the spatial location of each of the features, and the color of each of the features into a memory location on the computing device;
processing each of the phenotypes of the customized tangible body to determine a complete phenotype of the customized tangible body;
using the complete phenotype information of the customized tangible body to identify a digital body of the complete phenotype from a plurality of digital bodies stored in a server coupled to the computing device; and
retrieving the digital body from the server and configuring the digital body on the computing device; and
interacting with an operation of the digital body by the user, the operation of the digital body including an interaction with the customized tangible body in digital form;
wherein the interacting with the customized tangible body in digital form includes reading a story, telling a story, drawing, singing, dancing, animations, and combinations thereof to increase an attention span of the user from about one minute to four minutes and greater.
