Protecting your furniture or just adding fun to an
awesome party is easier with these Arc Reactor light up coasters. This product is
based on Marvel's Iron Man and the arc reactor in Tony Stark's chest. The
coasters are available in a set of four. They were conceptualized and created
by ThinkGeek and are officially licensed by Marvel.
The coasters operate off of
two button cell batteries, which are included, along with two spare batteries.
The coasters light up and glow for a period of five minutes before shutting off
to conserve battery power. They are not pressure sensitive and do require
toggling the on/off switch to get them to illuminate.
The coasters work best with clear or translucent
cups and glasses. The blue, cold glow of the Arc Reactor projects through the
bottom of the glass and changes the color of your preferred beverages. The
coasters do not get warm because the coasters use LED lights and may be used
with either hot or cold beverages. The coasters are waterproof, but should not
be submerged into water.
People and kids of all ages like using the Arc
Reactor coasters for more than setting their beverages on. They can be
incorporated into your favorite party games, like beer pong in the dark. Turn
on the coasters, set the cups on top and turn out the lights to see who can hit
the cups in the dark. The coasters can be used to create your own custom Iron Man
costume. Add flair to the interior of your automobile by using the coasters in
the cup holders.
If you like painting or drawing, incorporate the coasters into
the art work for unique finishing touches. They also make a great night light for
kids to use to help light their way in the dark. The possibilities for the
number of uses and amount of fun you can have with the Arc Reactor coasters are
