Always striving to improve our ‘idea to business’ ratio
Successful development phase and launch in 2015. Steady growth and exciting product pipeline
Loober - Peer to Peer Voice Chat
Ahead of its time – unique firewall piercing technology; agile codec; and messaging functionality, but too complex set-up at the time and too many sound-card and network issues – Loober failed to make it.
Weatherto Ltd - Travel site
you know when you want to fly, where you want to fly from,
but don’t care where you go as long as the weather is good.
SMS Routemaster - Check route accessibility
This Android app targeted SMS wholesalers to crowdsource SMS route availability. Test SMS messages would be sent to participants where messages would arrive silently on the device and analytics returned to Confabulate via the mobile Internet. Unfortunately Android APIs changed to prevent silent receipt of messages making idea unviable.
Helpline - Covid 19
Confabulate Ltd created a platform to enable volunteers supporting local communities to remotely divert helpline calls between volunteers during the Covid-19 crisis in 2020.
Quetooth - Bluetooth connection sharing
Quetooth combined bluetooth connection sharing and additional memory to make it possible for multiple contributors to add to the playlist on a bluetooth speaker. A new track could be buffered to the speaker during playback of the current tune.
Patent issues were unearthed during the development phase – the project was halted
betbait - dynamic video creation
betbait created video content including up-to-date odds in real time, aimed at social media feeds.
Proof of concept worked faultlessly but client couldn’t get their act together to commit to commercial deployment

The Pullman Manbag concept was brought to life when Justwise, Saffron Walden commissioned a prototype to be made in China. A great success, but Confabulate ‘bottled it’ when made aware that the minimum order quantity was 5,000
