I always use a coaster near my computer just to try and keep any moisture from drinks- “sweat” on cold glasses on hot days or drips down the sides of other beverages – away from my computer. Most are pretty boring, as the majority of coasters are still sold in sets with the intention of being used in a more formal room where the wood of the table needs to be protected, not just computer equipment. The Splat Stan Coaster is not boring at all and is a real jump away from the old mold. The coaster, sold individually, is made of silicone rubber and looks like a little orange guy has been partially flattened by your cup (silicone extends under the cup to protect the desk while Stan mostly sticks out to one side). It’s really cute and is a really neat toy to have in the office – even if you work at home.

A little water doesn’t hurt the computer.. In fact it makes it stronger! Just kidding. My desk is full dangerous unfinished drinks with no coasters. I’m living on the wild sideee!

This is so cool. I just visited the sight, and I love it! I’ll definitely be purchasing some items for myself and others in the very near future. Thanks!

I never use a coaster for Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi in the 24 oz plastic bottle. I always keep the lid on when I am not taking a sip. I have a skin on my MacBook, but have never spilled anything on it.
I always drink my soda at room temperature so it does not sweat.

hahaha I will try to save my coffee table tops by using one of these.

Computer equipment are very much sensitive and delicate stuff. Once the inside of the computers are exposed to a water, ground would usually destroy your equipment and you may be prone to be electrocuted. Be careful when you are drinking liquids near a computer.
