Activbax was my first real shot at a startup product. The idea evolved when I realized I could run full interactive flash applications in the Windows active desktop layer.
We built a software application that allowed users to manage interactive wallpapers that included 6 utilities and also install countless games and utilities, and run them directly from the desktop.
While we had some pretty good traction and big clients such as a few NHL teams and Taylor Made Golf, the dot bomb of 2001 finally led us to shutting the software down.
I was very proud however of what we created and how well it worked. We even had a couple knock-offs start to popup after we launched the highly visible Taylor Made version 🙂
