There's a small group of mad scientists hard at work in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It's a tiny group - three people plus a few interns - that form a company you've probably never heard of. They aren't concocting potions, curing diseases, or solving ancient math problems, they're doing something totally different: They're building furniture.
If there's one piece from RockPaperRobot you might be familiar with, it's the Float table. A series of repelling magnetic cubes form one of the world's most unique coffee tables. The piece, which up to 10 people request info on daily, was inspired by a magic trick one of Jessica Banks' friends showed her back in the day. "I wanted to capture that moment and freeze it," said the founder of RockPaperRobot. "Like a frozen moment of awe."
And the Float ... continue reading

We’re not quite sure why, but when we think of foreign movies we immediately think of French romance flicks. Pass. This is dumb since there are a ton of solid foreign movies for dudes. In fact, if you don’t mind a bit of reading with your movie watching, there are some kickass foreign films you really need to see. Here are 10 to get you started.

Yes, we said, "Meat on a stick." Just get all your immature giggling out now (we did plenty putting the list together). Okay, good? Now, we don't know why, but food placed on a stick is immediately 2-3x more appealing than it would be on a plate.

We never thought a culinary revolution would spawn from a White Castle (even though we think more food should come in Crave Cases), but sliders have become a bit of a trendy food over the last couple of years. If there's a party that has some passed mini burgers, you better believe you can find us right at the ... continue reading
Surprisingly, not everyone wants to hear our music. When we were pumping our LCD Soundsystem mixtape, others in the office said they couldn’t “concentrate” and they “wished we were fired.” For this, and for many other reasons, headphones are an absolute necessity in our daily lives. It was long before Steve Jobs produced white earbuds and Dr. Dre jumped in the game, however, that people began getting tunes pumped into their ear canal. Here’s basically how it all went down. ...... continue reading
