Non-RFID poker cards - full set

We've called these poker playing cards, but obviously they could be used for any card game.
One of the exciting ideas we came up with, was playing a game with an absent player - no longer does your regular poker night need to be disrupted because one or more players can't make it! Using these special playing cards, and a card-reading table, you can deal your friends in, and have them play over the 'net.

Anyway, that's way off in the future - we've yet to prove that the idea even works yet. But that'll be made much easier, now we've received this full deck of playing cards from Custom Stuff:

Can't wait to get making at BuildBrighton tonight, to see if we can actually read the cards using a few LDRs and a PIC microcontroller....


  1. This project looks great. I was just doing some research on rfid for poker tables and ran across your blog. Any updates on this?

  2. I've got a working prototype which can identify the colour of the card and hope to test reading the "pips" with the next version. Look out for follow-up post with videos in the next week or so!

  3. The website is looking bit flashy and it catches the visitors eyes. Design is pretty simple and a good user friendly interface. 파워볼엔트리

  4. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know 언오버먹튀

  5. I really loved reading your blog. It was very well authored and easy to understand. Unlike additional blogs I have read which are really not that good. I also found your posts very interesting. In fact after reading, I had to go show it to my friend and he enjoyed it as well!
