Floppy disks might not be good for storing your data anymore, but they’re still good for protecting your coffee table from pesky rings left by a sweaty can of beer.
These wooden floppy disk coasters are the perfect way to honour the memory of this now-obsolete piece of tech while you enjoy a cold beverage. And your living room furniture will remain unscathed!
Formed from birch wood, laser-engraved with all the vintage details, and covered with a matte finish, a set of four coasters will set you back $US37, plus shipping. That price also includes you personalising them with whatever message you choose.
You probably haven’t laid eyes on a floppy disk in ages, and you definitely haven’t used one for a long, long time. Now you’ve either moved all your data to the cloud or you’re transporting documents on a thumb drive. But these cool coasters are a fun reminder of the way things used to be. And they’re functional, too! [Etsy via Cool Material]
