Floppy Disk Coasters by Supermandolini

by


Psssst. Do you remember how you had to walk a mile to school in the snow with no shoes on to use the mainframe? Ever fall asleep in class learning dbase III? Do you sometimes miss the boop bop beep bop wheeeeeee wailing of the modem?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you just might like this fun vinyl and foam soft sector coaster set from the clever folks over at supermandolini.

You can’t write protect anything to these disks, but you don’t need to worry about spilling a drink on them either (bonus).

Purchase a set of six for €27.00 (about US $40) at supermandolini.

    These are fantastic. The race track rules as well.

    Hello brownkidd,

    These are a lot of fun, aren’t they? I like the racetrack too and am looking forward to seeing more things in Supermandolini’s housewares collection.

    Haha that’s awesome.

    I remember long ago in the stone age we used to get together and have floppy disk throwing contests too.

  4. フロッピーディスクのコースター…

    フロッピーディスク世代には懐かしい形をしたコースターです。色もカラフルに取りそろえられていて楽しそうですね。これ見てたら、思わず昔使ってたフロッピーケースを引っ張り出…..

    I have listed 5 things all new laptops will have In 2010:

    One of them is flash memory entirely replacing CDs in 2-3 years from now. Do you think a CD will follow the fate of a floppy drive and become nothing more than a beer coaster?
