On vacation in Europe with his wife, Al Mithani was on a walking tour and noticed wall after wall of cool graffiti.
He thought — there should be an app for that.
“Is there a walking tour for graffiti?” Mithani asked his guide.
The response was, ‘not today,’ and he thought it would be great to be able to walk around the city with his smartphone as a guide at his own pace and at his own time.
Mithani brought that idea back to Hamilton, where he partnered with seven local professionals and students in the communications, technology and business industries to make Walkbug, a smartphone app that uses tour paths to encourage city exploration.
