5.25-Inch Floppy Disk Coasters Save Tabletops, Not Data

by Paul Strauss

For some strange reason, I never thought I’d write a story about floppy disk coasters twice. But these really floppy, floppy disk coasters I found over on Etsy today were just too good to be ignored.

Modeled after the truly retro 5-1/4″ floppy disk, these soft coasters are handmade from colorful felt, and just like their real-life cousins, are guaranteed not to store any of your data reliably. But they should keep your coffee table free of stains.

San Jose crafter TheGeekery handsews these coaster floppies from EcoSpun felt, which ironically happens to be recycled from the plastic bottles that your drink probably just came out of.

Each set sells for $28 (USD) and comes with four brightly colored floppies, packed in one of those old school floppy disk cases that used to clutter my closets back in the day. And if you prefer to go with classic black floppies, you can even specify your own custom colors.

So who really needs flash drives, hard disks and optical storage? I proclaim ‘let’s bring floppies back!’ Show your pro-floppy support by picking up a set over at TheGeekery’s Etsy shop.
