RockPaperRobot is an “engineering boutique” founded by two intelligent and creative ladies, who have made a goal for their company to bring to the market what is called “high-end kinetic furniture and lighting”. Among other innovative pieces, the Float Table stands out as a unique concept that combines physics and modern design. Its looks are deceiving, as the handcrafted dark wood makes the table seem sturdy and static, while a gentle push onto the cubes reveals its dynamic and fluid character. The 64 walnut cubes … continue reading
For some reason, this scooter reminds me of The Jetsons. Remember how they used to press a button and make their flying car turn into a briefcase? The Moveo electric scooter was created by a Hungarian non-profit organization that is still looking for resources to mass-produce the vehicle. Ergo, we don’t know the price yet. We’ve heard rumors that it could be as low as $3,100, which sounds really good. The specs are also pretty impressive. The weight reaches 55 lbs (25 kg), it achieves … continue reading
Like feeding a chicken its own egg, this bottle fridge works on the same (albeit less cringe-inducing) concept – that of stuffing a rather large Cola bottle with other Cola bottles. Sure, I could’ve made the Matryoshka analogy, but who censors the censor? A reminder of better, simpler days, when Coke bottles used to be tinier and cuter – for a bite-sized refreshing experience – not the buckets of soda we get in stores today. A mini-fridge to remind the nostalgic collector of the past, … continue reading
The idea of small containers all over one’s house isn’t old, nor is it unused – we bet you have masses of cups, jars, boxes and other recipient-type-things on your desk/floor/bed/closets. But you haven’t even begun to use your walls yet. Sure, installing shelves is all fine and dandy, but even those shelves end up housing a population of storage cups. Here is where Cuppo comes in, to save you from overcrowding your precious shelves with nick-knacks (because, let’s face it, they are meant for … continue reading

Situated on the outskirts of the town called Pisco Elqui, Domos Elqui is a different accommodation concept, designed to offer its customers the ideal opportunity to explore the beautiful night sky, in the Elqui Valley, Northern Chile. It’s internationally renowned as being one of the best stargazing locations in the world, due to its clear atmosphere and sky.

We don’t know about you, but we were cringing in our seats watching videos where people chop vegetables or slice bread and pizza on an iPad. I think it’s a more disturbing feeling than watching Spiderbot dance. If you hate your iPad that much, give it to a friend and buy yourself an actual chopping board that looks like the tablet. And if you want to make your Apple fan boys friends at your dinner party scream in horror while they’re watching you slicing a … continue reading
If you have not heard of Jolla by now, first thing you need to know is that it’s pronounced “Yolla”. What is it? It’s a phone. A special one.

The phone has been available for pre-order since the end of May (the period has ended), and is expected to be shipped some time before … continue reading
