ROPID: Cuter Than A Baby Prawn

November 6th, 2009 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

Meet Ropid (Rapid + Robot), a new robot just unveiled by scientists in Japan that jumps, responds to directions…

…and is about 10,396,574 more adorable and fun to watch than your obnoxious little cousin with 1 year of ballet and 4 years of piano lessons under her belt, who your aunt dresses up in stupid party dresses every time there’s the teeniest, mundane family function going on–who she will HUSH AN ENTIRE ROOM FOR (sometimes even an NBA Playoff game) so that the little fucker can sing a song and dance it out, then follow with an encore presentasian of a plunked-out, shitty Sonatina on the piano.

10,396,574 more adorable and fun to watch than your cuz. And you can turn it off.

Name: Kaba Modern

Occupation: Dance Crew

Known for: Giving the dopest performance last week on MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” (yes, we watch the show and it rules) to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” doing cool stuff with their hands in routines, “Tut-in’,” emerging as the ones to beat.

Learn more about Kaba Modern, which formed in 1992 at UC Irvine, here. Catch them on Randy Jackson Presents…America’s Best Dance Crew on Thursdays, 10 ET/7 PT. Warning: Kaba Modern is as addictive as J.C. Chasez, one of the judges, is a windbag.

Name: Giant Robot

Occupation: Asian-American pop culture rag and brainchild of Eric Nakamura and Martin Wong

Known for: being The Little Yellow Zine That Could, showing the world why they should get on the Asian Cool tip, profiling street and pop artists like Barry McGee and Murakami before they were in every major museum collection in the free world, legitimizing skate culture, an empire of publications, shops and one restaurant in Los Angeles.

(True story–Jen met Martin Wong at Comic-Con in 1997. Martin was hawking dopeass t-shirts with an image of Bruce Lee rockin’ a turntable at the edge of the convention center. Jen was, like, “What the hell is Giant Robot and how can I be your intern?” She and Martin exchanged messages on this newfangled thing called e-mail. Martin never got his shit together to let Jen work for Giant Robot for free. The upshot? DISGRASIAN might never have happened if she had gotten that job. So thanks, Martin and Eric, for allowing us to find our own voice.)
