Accidents are bound to happen when you are trying to eat and drink while playing a game of Super Mario Bros., but at least this pint glass and coaster set will keep your furniture safe from your drink.
Still figuring out what to get the video game fanatic in your life this holiday season? Well, if they already own all the consoles, and bought every game you thought about buying them, perhaps you should think about getting them some of these awesome arcade button drink coasters.
I have an insane fear of heights. Even just looking over the railing when I’m on the third floor of the mall makes my stomach just a wee bit queasy. That said, you probably won’t expect me to hop on any roller coasters soon, but that’s just what I did when I went on a trip last week to a theme park.
These drink coasters are the ultimate accessory for video gamers – especially if you have an Xbox 360.
Created by CbSew, each set of four coasters comes with a yellow “Y”, blue “X”, red “B” and green “A” button to keep your coffee table from getting ruined by all those cans of Mountain Dew, Red Bull and Bawls.
No one likes the ugly sight of a condensation ring on the coffee table. This is a problem. Thankfully, there’s a solution, and it’s full of math.
These coasters will match perfectly with your number lamp and your equation bookshelf, so long as all you care about is, uh, math.
Though I’m not at all certain that a Red Ring of Death is something to celebrate, per se (they’re usually occasions of anger and misery in my neighborhood), I suppose it’s nice to take something awful and turn it into something cool.
As I spend much of my time trolling through a million-an-one RSS feeds for news stories, I find these clever feed icon coasters kind of amusing…
Created by the designers over at Meninos, the set includes the familiar icons for various web syndication formats like RSS & XML.
1985: A time when we gamers grew sick and tired of the princess being in another castle. When jumping on something first became a method of destruction. When Luigi looked exactly the same as Mario, except for his white and green clothes.
Check out these great drink coasters, based on those ubiquitous iPhone menu icons.
Created by the guys over at Brazil’s Meninos design (the same guys who make these awesome hard drives), these icon coasters are a great gift for any iPhone addict.
These fun drink coasters may just look like an abstract dot pattern on the surface, but thanks to some cleverly placed perforations, you can actually make your own custom pixel creations out of them.
Each coaster is made up of 110 individual 1cm square “pixels” which are perfed in a way that lets you selectively remove blocks from each square.
Here’s an ingenius little invention for all you boozehounds out there. Imagine if you will, sitting at your neighborhood watering hole, when the bartender sees a little flashing light out of the corner of his eye and just knows it’s time to refill your cocktail.
NASA is thinking about a new technology to save the lives of astronauts if something goes wrong at launch time. The proposed new emergency escape system is actually based on those vertical drop roller-coasters that have popped up at amusement parks around the country.
