While we are forever on team Star Wars when it comes to choosing between it and Star Trek, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some of the cool tech from the Star Trek world. And ThinkGeek has capitalized on some of that cool tech by creating Star Trek Transporter Pad LED Coasters.
Your beverages will materialize and dematerialize right in front of your very eyes (they won’t really). But the coasters will illuminate to give your beverage an otherworldly glow, and it will play the materialization and dematerialization sound.
Of course, that sound would get annoying after a while, so luckily you’re able to turn the sound effects off when you want. You can also turn off the lights, but why would anyone want to do that? They come in a set of four, each of which looks like the transporter pad from Star Trek: The Original Series, and measure 3 1/2″ in diameter and 1/2″ thick. So if you much prefer Captain Kirk to Captain Phasma, these Star Trek coasters are just for you.
