Supermandolini offers the history of the floppy disk – on coasters

Dave Walker Peripherals 3 Comments

Even geeks turn off the PC and kick back occasionally – and I’m guessing a few vintage computer obsessives would like the Supermandolini Soft Sector coasters to rest their drinks on.

Each one of the set of six features a different floppy, from an old 5.25-inch diskette from the 70s through to more modern designs. Well, as modern as a floppy gets. All are sized at 9cm x 9cm, have a glossy finish and a foam base to secure your drink.

And you can pick up a set online for 27 Euros.

    Hmm, surely if they wanted to be truly authentic they should have made them the correct size and dimensions. You’d then have to pick the right size mat for your needs – a 5.25″ for a bowl of soup, perhaps, and a 3.5″ for a regular mug?

    What about those weird Amstrad discs? They weren’t even square.

    Very much overpriced, but very cool, too. I wouldn’t buy them when I can get normal beer coasters for free, but I would love them as a gift. Maybe I should start adverising my wishlist more…
