This is a great idea. Rather than delivering a specific card game, they just provide the cards and table, enabling us to play any card game we want.

The video above was interesting to watch, with a range of support gestures for manipulating the cards. And the dealing motion out to the other devices looks pretty sweet. If it supported online multiplayer, it would be perfect.
