After 2+ years of intense research, it’s ready. Working in conjunction with the U.S. Playing Card Co. and top electronics engineers, we have developed the first ever self-illuminating deck. Each one of these cards uses superslim LED technology to light itself. Yep, the first deck of card’s to light up when manipulated.
We’re not talking about reaction to blacklight. We’re not talking about glow-in-the-dark ink. We’re talking ACTUAL ELECTRIC LIGHT at your fingertips.
Enter the Tesla Deck.
The Tesla deck is based off the studies of the enigmatic inventor Nikola Tesla, whose work with alternating current electricity gave Thomas Edison a run for his money. Using his work, we developed a cardstock embedded with nanotechnology that will blind you with its brilliance. It has the lumens of an iPhone.
No batteries needed. Each card comes equipped with lithium ion receptors that capture the static electricity generated from the friction of the cards sliding against each other. Every fan, every Hot Shot Cut, every double lift, every Sybil, every move gives you juice. Imagine the charge you’ll get from shulling.
This is a historic breakthrough and Ellusionist has the first prototype deck in hand. We shot a video of us using it last night and it was nothing less than spectacular.
We can’t show you the full deck just yet. But you get an idea of how it works as we filmed it lighting up in the dark.
While this technology will not be available for some time commercially, you can get a quick idea of how the works from the video below.
