Floppy Disk Coasters: Protect Your Tabletop and Your Data

by Paul Strauss

It’s been nearly two decades since I had to use a 3.5″ floppy disk for anything. I used to have boxes and boxes of the things packing everything from Microsoft Windows ridiculously bloated installers to various “warez” that I really shouldn’t have had in my possession. But those days are long gone, and pretty much all of my storage is of the solid state kind now.

After I was done using all those floppies, I thought they might make good drink coasters, but the moisture just got inside, and they scratched up my coffee table instead of protecting it. Fortunately, somebody has created floppy disk coasters with neither of those problems.

TechnoChic makes these fun retro coasters from old floppies which have been covered in vinyl, then backed with cork. Problem solved. No liquid gets inside the disk, and your tabletop is safe from scratches. I suppose you could do the same thing with a little time and hot glue, but ain’t nobody got time for that.

You can grab a set of five floppy coasters over on TechnoChic’s Etsy shop for $25. They’re also available in red if you’re looking for something a little more colorful.
