Doesn't it seem like the further we go in image technology, the more trendy it becomes to regress? We want pixel wallpaper and a pixel couch. And now even though we've got 1080p HD television displays, what we want on our coffee table is blue and, yep, pixelated. These Pixel Drink Coasters are made of water-resistant paper that perforated, which allows you to create your own pixel creations. Some ideas, including a rad Space Invaders "pixel sculpt," after the jump...

The coasters come in a single sheet, folded in 50 segments that you can cut in any way you want using the one-centimeter-long square perforations that divide each segment into 110 pixels.

They're made from a resilient paper fiber that should hold up to the condensation from your soda can or an occasional spill. In addition to the blue palette, there's also a hot pink version.

Pixel Coasters are only available from Taiwanese design retailer 25togo for the time being, but we'll keep an eye out for an American retailer. A pack of 50 coasters sells for 260 Taiwan Dollars, or about $8 American.
