Kyle Sorensen has made some carbon fiber playing cards.
That… pretty much says it all.

From the announcement:

There aren’t too many products that aren’t immediately cooler when they’re made out of carbon fiber. Daggers. Skateboards. Desk Chairs. Wallets. Now you can add playing cards to the list thanks to Kyle Sorensen and Kickstarter. Using Black 3k Twill Carbon Fiber, a silk screen, and red and white ink, Sorensen is creating one of the most beautiful fifty-four card decks we’ve ever seen. Technically, they can still rip and crease, but those standard paper card failures are only going to happen in extreme circumstances. They’re far more durable than your standard options, and they come with a plastic or metal case depending on your budget for a deck of cards no one else has. Stretch goals at $70k and $100k for red and blue thread options, respectively.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    $120 for one deck. Rad.

    Also, a link to the actual Kickstarter would have been nice.

    I fear this is a terrible idea.

    If there is any inconsistency on the backs of the card in the fibers you will be able to learn that and cheat in a game. Looks cool as an idea, but it reminds me of the Psycher cards in WH40k 2nd edition… my friends all knew the back of the ‘Vortex’ card and always managed to pick it.

    This announcement is way off. “Kyle Sorensen” is making Carbon Fiber playing cards not Cool Material. They just did a feature on it.
