Next time you think, “All the great ideas are taken,” consider the Stealth Playing Cards by AK Graphx, which takes a concept that you can do very little with – playing cards – and somehow makes it cool again. The cards look like they’re made of gun metal until you pause for a closer look. They are very much foldable and easily shuffled, thanks to the silk-coated paper from which each of the 54 cards are crafted – including two Jokers – and a metallic foil stamp adds imagery that just really pops out of your hands.
AK Graphx modeled the look after the Stealth B-2 Bomber Jet, according to the company’s Kickstarter campaign, which by the way has more than doubled its $12,000 goal as of this writing. So the next time you want to whine about all the great ideas being taken, re-focus your efforts and bring something new to an existing everyday object. You could be surprised at the results.
