Build futuristic projects at RoboHacks with us! Think of innovative solutions using technology and work on projects that inspire you. Whether it's building a robot to learn something new or working on automation, this weekend is all about hacking something incredible!
Join us for a fun weekend of hacking, workshops, mini-events, and more! While we'd love to have you build something on the theme, our themes are only here for inspiration. As always, build whatever you'd like!
- We require all teams to submit a 2 minute or less demo video.
- Your video must be created the weekend of the hackathon.
- Your code must be available in some sort of public repository.
- We do allow you to submit your project to other hackathons (this weekend only) as long as the other hackathon also allows this.
- If you're continuing work on an old project, you MUST specify in your Devpost what was worked on 1) before the hackathon and 2) during the hackathon.
