Card counter

Not playing with a full deck?

I usually end up halfway through a game of solitare when i realize that im missing the card(s) that i need--cards are easily lost and its a bit of a hassle to have to manually count them before you use the deck--so my idea is this: a machine similar to those that count money, but instead it counts how many cards are in the deck--this can be useful in card games where more than 1 deck is used

       now a machine that performed a shoot-through-the-air playing card shooting shuffle thing and electronically scanned each one to ensure a complete deck would be nice.

       I think we need a card counter.   

       please give this more thought.

       Unfortunately I don't think this would even suit the canabis-impaired:   

       Imagine trying to use a mechanical card counter, with all the related buzzing and whirring and manual dexeterity involved in loading it. Instant Techno-Paranoia.
