“UMD’s 4th Annual Bitcamp Hackathon Becomes Largest to Date with over 1,300 Participants”

“A total of 200 hacks were submitted by students (the largest amount in Bitcamp history) that demonstrate the ability to launch what could be the basis for a new product or company in a condensed timeframe. Some highlighted projects from the event include: A VR air traffic controller simulation, where trainees can report a potential crash through an Amazon Echo, An AR human skill pong (built by a team of UMD students), an Uber for intoxicated individuals in which designated drivers may be requested through the mobile app and a person’s location will be added to the designated driver’s queue, and a pet robot built with arudino and sensors to wag its tail when pet and go to sleep when the lights are off.”
