iPhone playing cards

Before handheld gadgets were the norm, I used to like shuffling playing cards when I was bored. (Remember when they used to give playing cards out in airplanes? I'd sit in my seat and shuffle the deck for hours.) Now people just fiddle with their iPhones during long periods of down time. With this deck of iPhone playing cards, you can do both at the same time. Sort of. [ Meninos Store via Craziest Gadgets]

    What aren’t they making into iphones nowadays. I like the idea of the cards though, fun to play around with. Not sure if I’d pay to get these playing cards.

    There was an episode of Mission Impossible (or New Mission Impossible or something) in which the gang had to win a poker game, and they did it by making a deck of cards out of lil screens.

    I swear I am not making this up.

    I think the episode was called The Merchant.

    Hah. That’s nothing. I carry 52 iPhones around each with a different playing card set as the wallpaper.

    You should see my card tricks.

    A recent project at work involved 60 iPod Touchs, a couple of the lads played cards with them. Can’t remember the game, I know it wasn’t snap ..
