Sandwhich

A Machine Learning App for an Age-Old Debate

Unleashed April 1, 2019

About Sandwhich

Sandwhich is a mobile app built to solve the sandwich debate by determining if the picture you've taken is a sandwich using machine learning, Flutter, and TensorFlow Lite technology. *

* We don't store or eat your sandwiches data.

What is a sandwich?

After discussing what a sandwich means to us and thorough research, we created our definition of a sandwich and trained our app along these guidelines:

A sandwich is an edible food with three distinct layers, at least two of which act as an exterior. The outer layers must be starch-based and overall the food must have a horizontal orientation.*

* Exceptions to the rule

Why We Built This

Our team has internally debated and silently watched online discussions about sandwiches for a while and we believe the world deserves an answer. We are all sandwich lovers at MotionMobs and felt we could put our skills towards this noble cause. We created Sandwhich as a product of MotionMobs Development Week, a new initiative that encourages our team to continuously learn, innovate, and integrate new technologies in our development process.

Our Process

The goal of MotionMobs Development Week is to build a POC (proof-of-concept) mobile app using new technology in one week. We focused on topics that would be relevant to people and it was in our ideation sessions where Sandwhich was born.

Is a 🌭 a sandwich?

"No, it’s a hot dog." - JJ Watt
"Order a sandwich at Saturday's game and see if they give you a hot dog. There's your answer." - The University of Georgia
"The bread is a delivery system, a ballistic delivery system. It is not a classic sandwich, in my view. If you were to [walk] into any vendor of fine hot dogs, and ask for a hot dog sandwich, they would probably report you to the FBI." - Anthony Bourdain
