The Star Trek Isolinear Chip Drink Holders Creatively Glow-in-The-Dark

Taking inspiration from the Star Trek series are these creative glow-in-the dark coasters that are designed to look like isolinear chips from The Next Generation. The chips are the show's fictional version of what a USB storage system would be today.

The coasters are made using clear plastic in technicolor shades such as orange and green. The slabs are printed with detailed microchip designs that copy the different chip reader elements using a special paint that harnesses light and illuminates in the dark. The plastic make ensures these coasters are incredibly easy to clean.

The coasters are ideal for Star Trek watchers and are marketed to both new and old fans that watched the series in its early days or the revived films released this year.
