Electromechanical Designer Dale Mathis of Las Vegas is set to launch his very first Kickstarter project on October 12th that breaks new ground in playing card development. The actual cards are just like a standard deck of playing cards. However, what makes this deck so unique is what happens after you are done playing a game of cards. The "3D and Mechanical" piece to this project is in the tuck case and the add-ons the turn this deck into a displayable contraption complete with a special frame. Dale has designed a clockwork like contraption that is complete with movable gears and a mechanical card frame.
To get a closer look at how this all looks, here is a video produced by Dale and his team:
If funded, the cards inside the mechanical tuck case will be printed by the United States Playing Card on standard Bicycle playing card stock and embossed finish. The design is not 100% custom as only the tuck case, back design and Jokers are of custom design.
It is clear this deck is all about the case it is displayed in.
The project will have a goal of $35K and will fund for only 30 days. Decks start at $25 without the mechanical frame. The frame tier starts at $155.
