This app tells you if you have a hotdog or not a hotdog

I can’t even imagine how many dick pics this app will generate.


Ketchup or Mustard?


The question of import in our fractured age.


Does it pass the “hot dog or legs” test?


I hear they have an API that will allow people to use it with Oculus (or was that octopus?).


But will it tell you, definitively, if your hotdog is a sandwich?


There is more pork in that shoe.

Unless it is fake leather, in which case go ahead and eat either of them, it’s your stomach.


I think I know where Silicon Valley’s writers got the idea: Comedy Hackday NYC 2016, How Many Rocks?. It used object recognition to return “It’s a rock” or “Not a rock”.

Sneaky sneaky!


I wonder how it rates tofu dogs, because I know plenty of people who insist those aren’t real hot dogs.


Previously on bOINGbOING:



Have them call us back when it understands bananas.


But, will it tell you if you have a Japadog?


I heard the developer sold it to Periscope to filter our dick pics.


Best episode of Silicon Valley in ages!

I was thinking that this show is really about the destruction that the main characters cause and now this episode confirms it.


It best say “hot dogs” with ketchup on them aren’t really hot dogs.
