Coasters That Look Like iPhone Icons

December 16, 2008 by  

Once again I’m going to post about something different today, rather than review an app or do something incredibly boring like that… 😉 Don’t worry I’ve got TONS of apps still to review. It seems like MILLIONS of apps are created and released each day. Just not enough time in each day to cover all of them. But this is something that caught my eye and couldn’t be passed up. I just had to let you know about this. It’s one of those supremely geeky things, that only Apple nerds or iPhone lovers would buy. It may be similar to a calculator watch, or pocket protector. Which, for you and I, might be right up our alley. I know I love to collect little items like this. Those kind of, one off crazy collectors items. Thankfully this little set of coasters actually has some form of a cool factor to it. So let’s check them out. Hopefully many of you who read this site will enjoy them too.

So here is what I brought you this far for. It’s a crazy set of coasters, but get this. They are made to look just like the iPhone icons on the homescreen. Check out the picture below… The original icons are all there, SMS, iCal, Photos & Camera. YouTube, Stocks, Maps, Weather, etc… Sadly the Calculator icon has changed since they made these, but that’s ok. The old calculator icon makes it even more old school. Just imagine now if they could make coasters for all of our favorite apps that have been released. What was that news story that came out not too long ago about Apple having over 100,000 apps available! INSANE

Is that not one of the sweetest things you’ve ever seen? I’d actually be proud to have this coaster set in a room in my (future) house, haha. I guess that doesn’t say much about me since I’m currently using a Geico caveman coaster for my dorm room. These icon coasters were created by a design firm that calls themselves Meninos. Apparently they hail from Brazil, and if you check out their products they make some awesome stuff. Especially those external harddrives, those are pretty sick. Make sure you check those out if you are into this sort of thing. 

Sadly these coasters are a touch expensive, especially for me, the cliche starving college kid. I barely make enough money to survive week to week. Luckily I’m floating by on scholarships and small loans, haha. Needless to say, $60 isn’t terribly bad if you’ve got the money to spend. It seems worth it to me, but I know I shouldn’t spend $60 on coasters… :( It’s sad being broke…

Anyway, is this cool or not cool? I just wanted to try posting something different. I want to keep it fresh here, and not just have an endless website with app reviews. I’m hoping you all agree too, so just let me know your opinion. Trust me, it always helps if you leave comments and let me know what I could do to make these articles better. Thanks, as always, for coming by.

    I really like the idea, bringing iPhone themes to real, maybe next time they will make iPhone just as big as coasters. :) Waiting for another reviews from you.
    Thanks Ryan,

    Regards,

    Hey the rumored Tablet should be bigger than the iPhone is now, maybe not as big as these coasters though. Thanks for the comment Felix!
