United People is a video messaging system created by Fabrica. The system can connect public spaces with the internet and MMS capable mobile phones.

The system was designed at the Fabrica interactive department, with the support of designers operating in the centre, and programmed by Fabrica and Tomato Interactive.

The design team chose an Apple e-mac with a custom-fitted touchscreen for the instore video messaging point. The software was programmed in Director.

The users can search the database for video identities, choose a face they like and send the person a video message, thus becoming part of a community. The system is designed to encourage playful and flirtatious communication between people.
