In the spirit of the ‘bakery, we’re taking overpriced gadgetry from the realm of what most would consider overkill into a world of fascinating novelty for the rich and famous.

The last time I played Spades is the first time I thought of this: there’s always a minute or so dedicated to arranging your cards in a particular manner after the cards are dealt. This particular manner is (nearly) always the same particular manner for any particular game.

This automatic card shuffler takes care of such a stupid nuisance by implementing some sort of card recognition system. Be it RFID or barcode or what-have-you, it comes with a few decks of specialized cards, as well settings for all of your favorite games. So the next time you play Bridge or Hearts or what-have-you, you’ll be able to start one round before you would otherwise finish the previous…

The best thing since the last thing that was better than this thing.
