Madhacks is the University of Wisconsin's twice-annual hackathon, bringing together participants from all over the US and Canada for 24 hours of hacking.
Unlike other hackathons, MadHacks is going to be putting emphasis on the wacky, the original, and the downright impossible!
- Teams may have 1-4 members
- All hackers in the team must be MadHacks 2018 registered participants. We will not accept any remote participation.
- No code is written prior to the hackathon

Your project will be judged on its technical difficulty and complexity. How much of the code did you write and how much of them was using an API or outside library.
Has this project been done before? If your project is to address a particular problem in society, does it actually solve that problem? Try to think out of the box and create a project that can wow our judges.
Does your project address a specific problem that we are facing in society? If not, do you think people will actually use the project that you create? Why do you think so?
Did you take into considerations some user experiences to make your project more easy to use for users?
Regardless if your project can actually run during the demo, what have you learned? What obstacles have you run into? Do you have a good story to tell about this learning experience?
