Kamino is a mobile app that uses the power of crowdsourcing to give travelers and urban explorers ideas on where to go and what to do. Kamino's 'urban hikes' are plotted on a map, and use information shared and suggested by locals.

The urban hike maps include photos and other details about why these spots are recommended, as well as time and distance estimations. They also allow users to access suggestions based on themes and preferences, such as kid-friendly, pet-friendly, nature-themed and so on.

The idea behind Kamino is to give people suggestions for attractions, restaurants, shops, hidden gems and other places of interest while they're walking around the city, essentially making them feel like they have a local guide alongside them and showing them around.
