I think these would look neat. They may be hard to look at for too long, but anyway. And why? Well, I guess it would be harder to cheat. Here are the details.
Regular size playing cards, with one side laser-etched into a hologram of a regular playing card. The face cards could be 3D, which would
look neat too. They would be made of Photo-polymer holograms (see link), which can be flexible, too.
I'm envisioning a border around the "face" side, so you know they're all facing the right way.
52 pickup will never be the same.

||I just did another search and found that Pokémon may have released holographic playing cards. But I'm betting they're not transparent.
||I thought this was going to be cards that you could read from both sides. what would you see on the picture side, Matty. sorry if I am being dumb.
||[po] I think with a few layers (maybe polarised) you could make it so that from behind you would simply see right through the cards. Not recommended (or maybe recommended) for strip poker. The point, other than my lame reason of eschewing cheating, is that it is funky and a novelty.
||[DrCurry] Wow - thanks. I did not realise that such a thing existed. I think my addition of holography makes these a much better products, however!
||Heck, I'll take 'em, even if they're shit.
||quote "nifty shit (idea)" quote - hence I give you a lovely fresh-baked croissant
||I actually have a pack of transparent cards at home, they are made by Next. So, as DrCurry says, baked!
||New York magazine shows a pack of transparent playing cards in the current issue. The suits and ranks are printed on opaque circles so you can read them from the back. But that reminds me of the playing card idea I had.
